I found her hanging about in my kitchen window and have no idea what kind of spider she is. She is pretty; I love her colors.

    1. The horrifying kind that would be the worst to discover by walking face-first into their web accidentally. Seriously, I fear that everytime I see a big web in a place that I could potentially be walking casually.

    2. I believe its a Weaving Orb spider (or something of that nature).

      What part of the world do you live in?

      PS: If it was at my house, or anywhere near me, it’d be a ‘Dead’ Spider. THe best kind of spider there is!

    3. oooooh, she is pretty!
      she’s a webdweller… but thats not much use considering there are thousands of types of spiders…
      i could make some guesses, but i’d prolly be wrong.
      she is pretty though, good find

    4. Spiders are awesome! They help keep your home free of ACTUAL pests. Killing a spider is like saying, “Sure, I want the disease ridden insects and such to enter my home, I got no problem with them, but this lady that kills them? Fuck this lady!”

    5. I as well would dispose of it using the largest weapon I could find that would not result in police knocking on my door. Probably due to being hung over a widow’s nest by a sadistic baby sitter at the age of 5. She was a bitch.

    6. I doubt she’s poisonous. We have the Brown Recluse and one other poisonous spider (can’t remember the name off hand) around here and she’s not either of those.

      I’m not going to kill her; I’ve seen stinkbugs in her web and anything tat eats them is fine by me. Besides she’s on the outside screen, no danger of getting in the house.

    7. It is a type of Golden Orb Weaver.. sometimes called the Banana Spider.

    8. My wife and I have a deal with all the spiders around here.
      If you stay outside, we’ll leave you alone.
      If you come in the house, the cats will most likely torment you ruthlessly, torture you then eat you.
      Your choice spiders.

      So far, it’s worked. =P

    9. That particular pattern looks pretty close to the zipper spiders we have in New England — same genus as the orb spiders in question. Chances are, if you’re in the US, it’s the Banded Garden Spider.

    10. looks like one of the Orb Weaver variety. And just for fun check out this link:

      it’s an unusually large orb weaver eating a bird. From QLD, Australia.Think about that next time you’re looking out your kitchen window 😛

    11. Argiope. Not deadly poisonous but can bite. When we were kids we used to throw grasshoppers into their web and watch them attack, kill and roll them up in webbing to eat later. If you throw non living things into their web, they will rock the web back and forth violently. Awesome colors.

    12. you know that, regardless of where you are on the face of the planet, you are never more than seven feet away from a spider, don’t you?
