What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Help – what is this spider????
I live in Oak View, California (near Ventura). This guy (girl) is outside my house. About an inch or so long with a big web – hides during the day and sits in the middle of the web at night…. we named him "Peter Parker" – any ideas?
Thanks, Bugman!

Hi Cyndi,
You might want to rename Peter as Petra. She is a female Orb Weaver, genus Araneus.
