The garden orb-weavers are a common spider found in in garden through out Sydney they are a large group of spiders with over 100 known species in Australia. When food is plentiful these spiders will release large prey rather than risk a fight that may damage their web.
The Garden Orb Weaving Spider makes a wheel-shaped web with openings between trees and shrubs where insects are likely to fly. When an insect flies into the web, the spider senses the vibration, rushes out from the web centre and rapidly wraps the victim in silk, rotating it with its shorter middle legs. When the prey is secure the orb-weaver administers a bite and sits back to allow the deadly venom to do its job. Once all movement has stopped, the spider takes the meal to the centre of the web and eats it or hangs it up for later.
the Garden Orb-weaver's are a reddish brown or a grey spider and about 1.0-2.5 cm body length.
Garden orb-weaving spiders are reluctant to bite. If they do, symptoms may include mild pain with possible numbness and swelling and occasionally nausea and dizziness. Seek medical attention.
