7389. Seen this spider in summer till now. I have 2 in the front of my home, one under siding above a window and one in the crevice of our self roll up garden hose gadget, and one at the back under roof above kitchen door.. Webs are large. They don’t seem aggressive but I find the design on the orbital part of the body fascinating. I stay close to highway 16 so I am not sure if they are native to our area or hitchhiked a ride on any transport trucks from Haida Gwaii to Alberta and from Dease Lake to Vancouver.
