Sing with me..."One banana, two banana, three banana, four...four bananas make a bunch and so do many more..."

Yes, you're right. Technically, these aren't banana spiders. They are Black and Yellow Argiopes, but nobody around here can pronounce Argiope (ar-guy-o-pee), so they call them banana spiders. All I know is that with more than a dozen of these beauties in my front flowerbed, it's not going to get weeded any time soon.
