House spiders are known for building cobwebs to catch prey. They are typically more active at night.
They are commonly found indoors, in corners, and near windows and light sources. They may also be found in garages and sheds.
House spiders are harmless to humans and are not known to pose any threats.
Regular cleaning and removing cobwebs can help deter house spiders. Sealing cracks and gaps in doors and windows can also prevent their entry.
