What type of spider?

Asked August 11, 2019, 12:21 PM EDT

I have a persistent spider that keeps creating webs all over the back of my house. Can you tell from it's web what type it is? I'm concerned about brown recluse since I have seen them here before, as well as black widows. Thanks. I'm going to attach a picture.

I cannot identify the type of spider by the web. It is unlikely to be that of a brown recluse or black widow. These spiders inhabit out of the way areas. Follow this link for more information:
