Yellow Garden Spider

Argiope aurantia


Conservation Status

  • The yellow garden spider’s latin name means “gilded silver-face.”
  • This spider’s bite is only as painful as a bumblebee sting. 
  • The yellow garden spider’s web can be 2 feet in diameter, and includes a beautiful, silk zigzag, known as a stabilimentum. 
  • Using a tiny strand of silk, baby spiders parachute away from their mother’s web each spring.
