Your letter to the bugman: Hello! I’ve seen this spider on my patio 3 nights in a row. The web must be set up quickly (it’s established sometime between when the sun goes down and when i go to bed) and the webs are gone the next morning when i get up. The webs are huge. I have small children so i just want to make sure i don’t need to be concerned! I’ve had black widows on my patio in the past, so i am paranoid. 🙂
How you want your letter signed: Bug man? 🙂
This is a harmless Orbweaver. You have no reason for concern.
