Black & Yellow Garden Spider Control
Identification and Descriptive Features
The species was first described by Hippolyte Lucas in 1833. It is common to the contiguous United States, Hawaii, southern Canada, Mexico, and Central America. It has distinctive yellow and black markings on the abdomen and a mostly white cephalothorax. Its scientific Latin name translates to “gilded silver-face” (the genus name Argiope meaning “silver-face”, while the specific epithet aurantia means “gilded”). Males range from 5–9 mm (0.20–0.35 in); females range from 19–28 mm (0.75–1.10 in). These spiders may bite if disturbed or harassed, but the venom is harmless to non-allergic humans, roughly equivalent to a bumblebee sting in intensity.
A bite by Black & Yellow Garden Spiders is comparable to a bee sting with redness and swelling. For a healthy adult, a bite is not considered an issue. Though they are not aggressive spiders, the very young, elderly, and those with compromised immune systems should exercise caution, just as they would around a beehive or a hornet nes drop readily when disturbed. Unlike many orbweaver spiders, they do not make a retreat along the edge of the web.
