Grass Spider – Identification

Q: I only see these webs in the early mornings. Once the sun shines on them they disappear.

A: It’s the web of a grass spider. You can easily guess why it’s called that. The spiders roam through your lawn eating whatever insect prey they can find.

Morning dew makes the webs stand out but when the webs dry, they are almost invisible.

They are harmless to humans. Grass spiders are timid and non-aggressive. When their web is approached by anything other than an insect, they typically retreat to the back of their funnel web.
