The common star spider orb weaver is a short-lived garden inhabitant that poses no threat to humans in any way. If it were to even accidentally pinch you with its tiny fangs the venom is non toxic to humans and painless.
Nature has marvelous ways of creating a beautiful and balanced environment for us without the aid of poisons to exterminate anything at all. Lets try to Learn, Love, Conserve.
When we Free our minds of fear we free our world of poisons that kill innocent creatures that makeup the Web of life we all are a part of.
