Can anyone identify this spider for me please?. It has been stuck in a sealed container for 3 months. The container has been sealed in my shed since I moved house. Which brings me to my next query.... How long can spiders survive without food.
It's a Steatoda (false widow), hard to say from that pic whether it's S. nobilis, or S. grossa.
She could probably do with a drink, spray/drip a little water on the side of her container. She's not aggressive, nor dangerous, bites are usually the result of spiders being squashed against the skin (trapped in clothing etc.). I have a couple of S nobilis living in my front room.
Spiders can go several months without feeding.
