Most people will shy away from a spider. Some are warranted but these Orb spiders are your friends around the garden and home.
Bugs be gone the natural way.
Now, that said, I do hate being ambushed by their webs because they tend to place them out in walkways so they can catch their prey. They tend to let them go during the day and build at night.
To watch them work is a treat and I have added a video, sped up of course, to show how they work.
