Comments & ID Thoughts

Please help identify. We have found numerous of this kind in our kitchen over the past week, and have never seen them before this time. Thank you!

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 What I can make out looks like some-sort of Mesh Web Weaver (Dictynidae), compare to Dictyna: https://bugguide.net/node/view/963458/bgimage

They’re not anything to worry over, though they shouldn’t be in your kitchen. I’d look for cracks in the floor or around windows and seal them.
