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.
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.
