Araneus diadematus: Cross Orb weaver?

Every spideris venomous, however most are not medically significant. This spider is not medically significant and outside your home or wherever it is will provide a great resource for decreasing pesky insects. The females stay in the web, males will leave theirs to find a mate.

*most spiders are venomous. Don’t forget spiders in the family Uloboridae are not venomous.
