Orange Garden Spider

About Orange Garden Spider

Spiders in the garden come in a variety of hues, including orange. The marbled orb weaver is an excellent example of an ordinary orange garden spider. Orange garden spiders emit a chemical that prevents them from clinging to their silk, even though their webs are naturally sticky. The abdomens of both males and females of this species are yellowish-orange. The two-color types are dark orange butts and light yellow butts with dark blotchy parts near the rear. The female is generally the most striking in both color varieties since she is 2-3 times the size of the males and may grow to be roughly the size of a tiny marble (up to 20 mm), which is terrifying for people who find spiders of any size scary.


The web of the orange garden spider is shaped like a wheel. Supporting lines serve as a significant structure in these webs. Silk threads radiate from the center of the web, much like the spokes of a wheel, and are attached to the supporting lines. Orange garden spiders make zigzag patterns in their nets as well. These threads vibrate to notify the spider of prey caught. The velvety-textured long legs of the orange garden spider allow the arachnid to approach catch prey swiftly.


Orange garden spiders frequently construct webs in regions next to open sunlight fields. They may remain hidden and sheltered from the elements. The spider may also be found on the eaves of houses and workshops, as well as in any tall vegetation where it can extend a web safely.


Garden spiders are mostly non-aggressive and have never been reported to bite people. Garden spiders, on the other hand, will bite if their webs are disrupted or if the enormous, yellow, and black striped spiders feel threatened. The chances of being bitten by a garden spider are incredibly minimal due to the obvious visibility of their webs and the fact that they don't normally create webs in walkways as woods spiders do.


Checking for and cleaning spider webs from around your home and yard on a regular basis keeps spiders from hiding and breeding. Strong odors, such as cinnamon, eucalyptus oil, and citrus, are repulsive to spiders. Cinnamon candles, eucalyptus, and lemon/orange oil sprays can be used in locations where spider webs are common. Spider-proof your home by sealing up gaps between walls and beneath doors as much as possible to keep spiders out.
