Today when I got home from the store, I saw this huge spider in my holly bush. It was pretty scary looking I took a picture of it before I killed it. Did a Google search on spider types and found it. The name of the spider is St Andrews Cross Spider. I was happy to read that it is a non-toxic spider. They also mention that it is considered beneficial because the large webs catch flying insects like flies and mosquitoes. Um….It my be beneficial but I really don’t I want them hanging around my house.
