New Resident Muscle

My boyfriend says it's merely a "garden spider"... Creepy! So I'm not going to ask him to leave! Yesterday, he had a fly wrapped up and started eating it. Yuck!

I had two garden spiders in my yard one year. They were absolutely terrified of me. I'd go over and watch them really close. Their colors were so beautiful. Unfortunately the egg sacs didn't survive the winter.
 
@Aunt Caffy Are they good at keeping pests away from the tasty tortoise plants? If so, that's likely the only reason I would keep him around!
