Can anyone tell me what this is?

Its about the size of a quarter.

Yes, I know its a spider, but  what kind?

Don't know the name, but I see them all the time. A BB gun should solve your problem.

Barring that, leave him alone, he'll eat bugs.

That's an ugly fucking spider is what that is.

Its right by my front door so hopefully he will catch the bugs before they enter the house.

This type only comes out at night anyway.

Leave him alone.  He's got a valuable niche in the ecosystem.

Just let him grow, as long as you don't threaten him you are good to go.

I never planned on killing it. I'm a man so I'm not afraid of spiders.

Take two 4x12 boards

smack them together with the spider in between

clean up webs

Ask Dr. Fridge, he might know what it is.

Some type of Orb Weaver. They are awesome to watch while the build thier webs, takes them between 1-4 hours to get one of those things completed.

They catch, kill, and store bugs for later. So when they get one in the web the just kill it and hide it away and wait for another. So they constantly take down the bug population on a property. Not just when they are hungry.

Get a pellet gun, pump the bitch up, no pellet.

Spray paint your porch with bug splatter

Nothing like walking out of your house in your full morning glory to walk face first into a spider's web.  

Fuck that shit dude, kill the bastard or ATTEMPT to relocate him.  That bastard is a good bug killer.

Kill it now! WD-40 and a cigarette lighter works wonders for eradicating these bastards.

If you wait too long, these things can grow to the size of a Volkswagen Beetle and simple bugs no longer satisfy their appetite... guess who's next on the menu?

That one looks like it could take on a stray cat, too.  Shoot it with a blank.  The muzzle blast should ruin his day.
Link Posted: 8/3/2005 6:58:25 PM EDT
That's a Commonous Harmlessous.

Leave him be.
Link Posted: 8/3/2005 6:59:21 PM EDT
Cover me!!

I'm goin in.

Yup, it's an Orb Weaver.

They look scary to some people. They do a very good job taking care of flies.
Link Posted: 8/3/2005 7:23:46 PM EDT
Orb. Beneficial. Relocate him if you are worried about getting bit (harnless but a lil pinch) I relocate spiders all the time around my house. Good pest control.
Link Posted: 8/3/2005 7:29:08 PM EDT
Plastic mayo jars work well for relocation. Large opening and clear plastic lets you know where it is in the jar before you open the top.
Link Posted: 8/3/2005 7:29:53 PM EDT
He won't eat much, leave him alone.

Thats an alien listening device

Cook it up for dinner, but don't forget to post the obligatory dinner pic of it ready to eat.
