Anyone seeing this relatively new species of spider in Georgia? Thank goodness it has small mouth parts and likes to eat stink bugs.

I see lots of spiders but I don't get close enough to distinguish what it really looks like.  I will keep an eye out for them.  Spider webs all over the garden.  At certain times in the year I carry a small (5 feet long) bamboo stick and just wave it as I walk down the aisles so I don't get any spider webs on me.

At least they are large and colorful enough to see. The black widow is the only one I have to watch for and she is usually out at night. I use an extendable cobweb duster under and around the table top beds and also in the 1 foot trench between the fence and retaining wall.

Maybe that's what I should do when I mow the yard, lol...

Black widows are my nemesis.  Hubby used to leave his gardening shoes in the garage.  A huge female took up residence in one & was very unhappy when he put his big ole foot in there.  The doctors said later that the only reason he didn't die is because he's such a big guy & she bit him on the foot.  If it had been a child, there probably would not have been much hope.  He apparently has his own drawer at CDC.  (They called us later to ask him several questions.)  THAT'S how big she was.  And he still has problems with that foot 25 years later.  It's like more poison releases & causes his foot to feel like it's folding like a taco.  And lots of pain.

Moral of this story - DON'T leave your gardening shoes outside or in the garage.  And always look in them (or ear muffs, etc) before you put them on....
