These sprawling webs radiating from a hole, crack, or crevice are created by female crevice weaver spiders. They are also called southern house spiders. The webs are not sticky but meant to entangle the legs of insects on which they prey upon.

The female spider looks like a tiny tarantula, gray and velvety, while the males are often mistaken for brown recluse spiders. The males do not make webs.
