Many hikers hate the Golden Silk Spider during the late summer and most of fall. They weave large golden webs making a sticky trap for its prey.  They feed on flies, bees, wasps, butterflies and moths. This spider will bite if provoked, and the bite is usually less severe than a bee sting.

The females can be identified by a white and orange carapace (dorsal). They range from 25mm to 40mm.  Both have hair tufts on their legs.  While the males are dark brown and are only 4 to 6 mm long.
