    I have just found a nest, in my garden, of what appears to be 100's of little yellow and black spiders newly hatched...Never seen them before in my life.... Being a bit worried (Yellow and Black is often natures warning sign) I have done a number of searches... After trawling the net it appears it maybe be a type of Argiope (black and yellow garden spider) however that is a US spider and I am living in the UK... Further searching suggests their is a 'Wasp Spider' which is found in Contienial Europe and sometimes the South Coast of England... Which is still a mystery as I live in the Midlands(England - UK) which is miles from the any coast let only the South Coast.... Should I be charging people to come and visit my Garden to see this rare site or is there another type of spider out here? They are not harmful to humans are they I trust??? - my mum is very anxiouis!!! Damon

    Look up poisonous snakes in your area, if not on the list then it is ok. Know a big black spider.
