Found this bad girl..

Hi all, just spotted this in my garage between the corrugated sheets of the roof. Any idea what it is? Huge batch of babies hatched top left of the picture.  Thanks for any help.

    Hi Smicer01,


    This is Steatoda nobilis the noble false widow. I wouldn't worry though if they are in the garage. The babies will disperse whilst quite small, adults tend to be fairly spread out. Females, like the proud mum in your photo, like to stick close to their web & nearby hiding place. Their not great ramblers & prefer to stay out of our way.
