Spider ID please!

Found what I think is a male Steatoda Grossa in my flat in Kent, do people agree? A few days later we are finding a lot of smaller spiders (15+) in high corners around the flat, are they its offspring? We are yet to find the female, are there any particular places I should be looking - cold, warm, dark, light? We have young children and want to set all of these spiders free asap!


Thanks in advance

    Hi Chivnos,


    Indeed Steatoda grossa, they are more widespread than S. nobilis. I'd look around floor level, under furniture & appliances for females. Bear in mind though, that they are quite shy & reclusive, so typically aren't a problem. Spiderlings & wandering males may be more reckless & easily spotted.
