    He is a Steatoda nobilis, one of the false widow species. They can bite, but are not aggressive. Nevertheless, I tend to relocate males as they have a habit of wandering around and potantially getting in places they probably shouldn't. He should be fine in an out building or exterior wall.

     

    Females tend to stick to their webs, I leave these alone.
