Comments & ID Thoughts

Found in its web under an overhanging kitchen counter in a mobile home. The web wasn't very sticky.

I have also found a number of empty webs throughout the home, mostly in cabinets. I'd really like to know what I am dealing with here.

Hi, looks to be a red house spider.

These are very harmless, worth having a couple about if they are out of the way.
