Yellow Garden Spider

By Anders Nielsen, Ph.d.

The yellow garden spider, also known as Argiope aurantia is most abundant from the end of July to mid September. They produce huge orb webs and hang in their webs with their head down, waiting for prey.

Are spiders insects?

The prey they feed on are small insects, and the only insects they get are the ones trapped in their web. These spiders are sometimes called writing spiders due to the zigzag patterns often found in their webs. The patterns are called stabilimenta since they add stability to the web.
