Spiders: Good or Bad? A question came in to Ask Gardenerd this week from Mary: "Whenever I find a spider in my house, I trap it and put it out in the garden. But is that a good practice? Are all spiders beneficial in the garden, or should I not be messing with the buggy ecosystem going on out there?" Your instincts are good, Mary. With the exception of black widows and brown recluses, spiders are beneficial arthropods to have in the garden. They are great predators of garden pests and they do the work so you don't have to. Always wear gloves when reaching into storage containers or dark corners in case there are black widows or brown recluses living in those spaces. Most spiders don't bite unless you are invading their space, but let’s be safe, not sorry. Read up on spiders in this article by Planet Natural.
