Is this a false widow?

Hi,

 

I live in Penicuik, Midlothian and have just found this wandering up the door frame at the back of my house. Is this a false widow? Also what is best to do with it?

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Ken

    Hi Ken,

     

    Your spider is a lace weaver, most probably Amaurobius similis, or A. fenestralis. Common, native spiders often found around the outside & sometimes inside our homes.

     

    Put it outside.

     

    Regards, Mark.
