House Spiders are the most frequently found spiders in most homes and dwellings. House spider webs are typically funnel-shaped and can be located in various places within a home, including windows, wall and ceiling corners and above or beneath fixtures. House spider webs can become rather  large and are constructed of thin silk threads. They serve both as dwelling places and as traps for their prey. Although their presence is usually unwanted they can actually prove useful, as they consume other unwanted household insects. Some known species are the common, domestic, brown, black, southern, and aggressive house spider.
