How to identify a false widow spider


Where do false widow spiders live?

False widow spiders are found all over the world in temperate climates – and are often found in dark, undisturbed places.

They like to live in garages, hollowed out trees and woodpiles.

False widow spiders build loose and irregular mesh-type webs, often on plants, in loose stone or wood piles or in the corners of rooms, garages or outbuildings.

They do not produce the symmetrical web typical of orb-weaving spiders or the distinctive funnel pattern web of the funnel weaver spiders.

They will only bite if disturbed – so make sure you look where you are going when searching around in your garage.
