false widow (LONDON) steotada nobilis

ive been noticing these disorganised webs springing up around my windows, mostly on the exterior thankfully.

i found what i rhink was a male when i took down my net curtains.

I've just found a female running across my kitchen floor. It came in on the mop bucket that i brought in from the garden.

the female was smaller with a rounder abdomen and shiny black in colour.

i sometimes have nieces and a nephew who come to visit. Is there anything to worry about?

p.s. the common house spiders i used to find in the bath occasionally don't seem to be around anymore...
