Hello all,

I don't know if this is or not the right place for this question but:

In my over grown garden besides a large family of rabbits, field mice and the odd brown snake I draw the line at these spiders - they have taken to installing webs across the paths.

Are these spiders venomous or pretty harmless ? Does any body know what they are named?

BTW : they are about 65mm long.

As furry as rabbits and mice but not as cute. Although I know an 8yo boy who would debate that.

Looks like it could be a golden orb weaver. Copy and paste this link and have a look:

Never turn over your garden when it is completely wet nor dry. Turn over when damp, otherwise you will destroy its structure.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
