Yes, even at fast food restaurants! 🙂 I noticed that about them to. If you find one, you can find more. They seem to really like handrails. I found a wooden scenic stairway view tower in Florida covered with their little orb webs. The challenge is to try to find them in other colors. The abdomens can be white, black, or yellow. The spines can be red and black.
