As with the springweather I found a longjawed orbweaver making its home prominently amidst the foliage of my home,
I feel it might be time for another thread built around all the encounters we'll be having this year with these 8 legged creatures around the house and the yard. or on our walk into the woods.
Have you been noticing any lately?

I'd rather see Asian giant hornets.
Would be more fun.

This guy lives on my porch and says hello whenever I do my stonework. I call him Frank.

I'd say that Marpissa spiders have a certain charm to them.
For some reason, I had one living inside my ceiling lamp.
Does it roam there very often then?

I just discovered the spider nesting outside my son's window when I went to his room.
I expected it to be another Zygiella, but it's a fat walnut orbweaver.
I think i'll keep his curtains closed when he goes to bed.

is it big? based on the picture, my app is guessing a false widow (steotoda), which isn't generally as dangerous as some stories claim
their patterns on the back are quite pretty, tho
I'd say standard widow sized
I could see it being a false widow

Got rid of an eratigena (smaller one though) inside the border of my door again not too long ago.
Also caught another glimpse of the walnut orbweaver behind the bedroom window. Most of the time the web appears to be empty.>>1113769
What kind of spiders do you usually keep consciously around the house?

Found smaller spider in my bathroom sink.
Decided for now to keep it inside a plastic cup and observe it a little

I think I caught myself a coffee bean.
There's one under the hinge of my front door as well.
