House spiders are predatory insects that will move indoors, especially during the cooler months of the year, to find secure areas to build their webs. They primarily live outside in protected areas around windows and doors, or under eaves where light will attract prey. House spiders prefer to feed on small flies, mosquitoes and other invertebrate insects. Inside, you will find their webbing strung in garages, sheds, barns, warehouses, in corners and closets, under furniture, or along joints where the wall meets the ceiling. While most spiders are not dangerous, many people are extremely creeped out by them and do not wish to have them, or their webs hanging around the house.

Generally there are few complications resulting from spider bites, however, those with allergic reactions, especially children and the elderly, should be cautious and proactive when dealing with spider populations.
