The Joro spider has moved to the no mountains. Aarrgh. At least they eat stink bugs

Very interesting, . I live in Gainesville and first noticed these three or four years ago. Each year there are more and more in our yard. Gorgeous spiders, but their webs are a bit of a nuisance and I would hate to faceplant one, and I know it’ll happen eventually.

Yes, at least they eat stink bugs, lady bugs, and in my case: yellow jackets. I’m happy to let them share my property as long as they don’t get on me. Amazing how fast they’re spreading through North GA.
