Near a cottage in south central ontario canada.
This is literally 12 inches from my head as I enter my home. It is easily 2.5 inches leg to leg. White waxy back with a vertical stripe. Brown striped hairy legs. Should I move?
Hi. your spider is one of the orb weavers, Araneidae family, possibly Larinioides genus, furrow spiders.
They are all quite harmless. Having played with these as a kid, if they web my porch in an inconvenience, I just take them out of their web and try to get them to make home near a window out of the way.
Nothing like a face full of spider coming in late at night. I welcome them and leave them undisturbed out of the way. Hardly call to move,easier getting the spider to move.
Thank you. I’ll post an eviction notice and see if he gets the message
