  • Hi Brenda,

     

    Yes, this is a male Steatoda nobilis. They sometimes end up in trouble with us, due to wandering around looking for a mate.

     

    The females (larger abdomens) on the other hand, tend to set home in a web & stay there, much less likely to clash with humans.

     

    Regards, Mark.
