    Hi Kateym,

     

    This is a femle Steatoda nobilis, a false widow species. If her web is high up, with a good hiding place & out of the way of people, then she isn't likely to be a problem. She will be OK outside if you want to relocate her (they don't typically come in to avoid the cold as often suggested), I have them in my flat, but don't tolerate them in the bedroom.

     

    Regards, Mark.
