  • Here is what Orkin has to say. I am fearless, so this I probably wouldn't even notice or care, but others are more sensitive. Hope this helps!

    Usually they don't bite unless you disturb a female in her web and she feels threatened.

    Probably, but they are not dangerous and they eat tiny bugs. Learn to recognize a brown recluse, a black widow spider, and any other poisonous critters that are dangerous where you live. Be careful and best wishes 😇

    No, garden spiders do not bite unless they are provoked... they're pretty mellow as far as spiders go (unless you are a bug)! They are not poisonous to humans. These incredibly beautiful spiders, especially the yellow orb weaver, weave unusual zig-zag webs that are very strong. They are very important to our garden industry but, unfortunately, as their habitats are disappearing, their numbers are dwindling. So fascinating​.

    Even if they do, they aren't dangerous, so don't worry!
