Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a Cobweb Spider (Theridiidae), but there isn’t enough detail in the image for me to be really be sure if it’s a Black Widow (Latrodectus) or not … it does look like it’s a pretty good possibility. Be careful removing it.

The more I look at it the more convinced I am that it’s a Widow. Tentative placement to genus.
