5751 Hi I am from Newfoundland Canada and I found these little guys climbing on my house right above my door and I’m just wondering what kind of spider they are. Can you help me please? I found it weird that 2 of them were hanging out together and seemed to be following each other.
These are cobweb/comb-footed spiders in the family Theridiidae; likely Enoplognatha ovata, an extremely variable species -see http://tinyurl.com/jfpmop9 for an example. They are harmless to humans. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
