House Spider

The common house spider is native to South America, but now occurs across the contiguous United States into southern Canada through transportation in plants. It mostly lives around humans, making it one of the most common spiders to build webs indoors. The common house spider belongs to a family of spiders that frequently abandons its web and builds another nearby. Dust settling on abandoned webs creates cobwebs, which accumulate if not removed often.
