    Just like Charlotte, a garden spider. I've thrown a million grasshoppers in their webs as kid, and adult over the years.

    I think the grasshoppers and garden spiders disappeared with the burley crops around here. I haven't seen any of the big grasshoppers in a few years.

    We have several of those spiders on gates at our farm....Huge critters! It would scare the daylights out of me if one of those things ever got on me....Do they bite?

    They would lay more as well. 3-4 egg sacks would be common.

    I always made sure nothing happened to the egg sacks. When we stripped baccer later in the fall I always checked on them to make sure they were in a safe place for the winter.
