Hi I have 2 spiders living above my front door we live on the 3rd floor and above our door it little holes they seem to come out mostly in the evening I have attached the pictures I've taken this evening I'm worried with all the talk of the fake widow
Yup this certainly looks like a rather lovely Steatoda noblis or 'False' Widow. Don't panic though as most of the stuff in the papers is made up rubbish. They're certainly not aggresive to us and 95% of the people who say they've been bitten actually have no idea what bit them. S.nobis would also far rather be outside than in your home. It has been a rather good year for them and I have noticed big increase in their numbers about South East London. But then again I do go looking for then .
Thank you it's very helpful. I live in East London and haven't heard of anyone seeing them in this area. So me and my young son safe then, I must say the press have put the frighteners on me
