    This is a female Steatoda nobilis, the noble false widow. They tend to stick close to safety, the web is usually constructed around a retreat, where they bolt to if they feel threatened.


    Males (smaller abdomen, abut equal size as the head) can wander about more, if you see any indoors, put them out. Outside they present little risk, even indoors females can be fine if left alone & out of the way (I evict them from the bedroom/bathroom, but leave them be elsewhere), their bite isn't dangerous.
