Everybody always wants to know what kind of spiders these are.

These are "Black & Yellows" or Black and Yellow Garden spiders.

These are the largest species of spider living in the mid south region (where I live). Only the females are black and yellow like this, the males are smaller and don't look like this at all.

They eat insects of all kinds, and their bite is no worse than a bee sting.
