Description
Description

Spiders rarely share a web unless during breeding, however, male and female Common House Spider (Parasteatoda tepidariorum) have no qualms about sharing a web! Besides, the webs are a nuisance because they are built close to human dwellings such as attic windows and loose walls. The Common House Spider fits in the family Theridiidae and is also called American House Spider, native to the Americans but now cosmopolitan. Their name came from the fact that they are the most encountered spiders indoor. These spiders camouflage well in the background because of their dull brown color, however, may bite in self-defense or fake death if cornered.
