Spider Webs – In Shrubbery

Q: We have a ton of spider webs in our shrubbery. My neighbor and I were concerned if this is an aggressive spider that is very busy or is it something else?

A: Fall is a great time of year for insects to be flying about so the spider population grows to match it. There’s no problem to the plants or to people.

I don’t know which spider is making your webs but the yellow and black argiope is a common sight in landscapes.
