I'm trying to figure this out too, today my daughter came screaming out of her room she told me there was a black spider with white stripes on its butt and she wasn't going to go back into her room until i killed it........

You'll have to do a bit more research. If web is spread out and symmetrical, sounds like an orb weaver of some sort. If it's a funnel, then could be a funnel spider. Mine turns out to be a grass spider (more to the name up front, but don't recall). flat web with funnel at end. Just remember, most Spiders are helpful. Granted - all of these are rather big and "substantial" looking - but mine turns out harmless.

Good luck!

A black spider with yellow stripes is a garden orb spider. These are very common and not poisonous to humans.

if your asking "is a zebra white with black stripes or black with white?" im pretty sure they are white with black because their bellys are all white so the white is the color of the body and then there are black stripes on it.

I suggest it's a Zebra spider; a species of jumping spider. See the link I've attached below in the related links section.

The zebra spider is an arachnid whose body is black-and-white striped.Specifically, the zebra spider (Salticus scenicus) can be found in Europe and North America. It has alternating black and white stripes running horizontally across its body and legs. It also will be recognized by predation - as a jumping spider - by pouncing and by two of eight eyes being particularly prominent.

it could be a brown widow or a black and white jumping spider

The kind of spider with a white body and black and white banded legs might be a crab spider. This could also be a wolf spider or a jumping spider depending on where you live in the world. There are over 40,000 species of spider.

Without knowing the size or body type of a spider, it's almost impossible to identify one. A black spider with pink stripes on its back could be a type of orb weaver, a tarantula, or a wolf spider.

A white tail spider fits the discription. Where do you live?

The Zebra spider, Salticus scenicus, is known as such because of its black and white striped body. It is a common jumping spider.

Black and Yellow Garden Spider http://www.enature.com/fieldguides/detail.asp?recNum=IS0107

its either a Huntsman or a Wood spider

I am guessing that zebras are black horses with white stripes since their muzzles and main mane color are both black. Although the true answer to this question is probably that they are neither, they are merely horses with black and white stripes all over their body.

Is it a smiley face crab spider? I usually go to www.bugguide.net for my bug questions. Just type yellow spider in the search and look through the pictures. Sounds like a garden spider. Non poisionous and has a zig zag white mark in its web.
