Spiders give me the creeps!

…especially big ones like this Banded Garden Spider in our front garden. As you can see, I took the photo from a safe distance. I’ve Googled how to get rid of it but I’m having second thoughts. You see, spiders are beneficial because they prey on bugs that would otherwise damage my plants. However, I don’t like seeing it every morning when I leave for work so last night we bought an ultrasonic repellent. We’ll see how effective it is. I don’t want to kill it off; I just want it to move a little farther away from our front door!
