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.
New Zealand's most popular spiders are Black tunnelweb spider, Slater spider, Sheetweb spider, Nurseryweb spiders/Water spider, Jumping spiders, Avondale spider, Vagrant spider, Black cobweb or False katipo spider, Christchurch huntsman & White-tailed spider.
House spiders are not known to be an aggressive spider and although they can bite their venom is not dangerous to humans. They are more cause for frustration as a nuisance pest indoors because of their habit to abandon and rebuild webs.
