Tiny Yellow Spiders on my Courgette plants

Postby scape » 29 May 2009 11:28

Hi there,

I re-potted my Courgette plants into a container in the garden last night, about 1 hour later i went to check how they were settling into their new home only to find hundreds of tiny tiny little yellow spiders climbing up to the leaves. I am unsure if they are a nasty bug or a good bug. however my theory is that they must be bad if they are in such numbers as in my experience all bad garden bugs come in crowds!!!!!
Can anyone shed any light on what they are and how i get rid of them. i just took them away last night, but pretty sure they will have returned.

:? :(
Thanks Sarah

I don't think these spiders are a problem. I think that at some point you have disturbed a nest of baby spiders in the house or in the garden.(probably just a commen garden variety)

Check again in a few days, but I would be surprised if they are still there and even more surprised if they have caused any damage.
