How long do they live?
3-5 years I believe. NOT long enough. I want this lass for years.
Still not too bad for a true spider.
No. But it's still not long enough.

Zoom In...i just found this guy in the house help me Id. Him
This species is among my favorite true spiders: the southern house spider (Kukulcania hibernalis).
They make great pets if you're interested in keeping true spiders. The females are unusually long-lived for true spiders, living 10+ years. (I have females I collected as adults in 2012 that are still going strong.)
The Poacher (Parasteatoda tepidariorum)
This common house spider took up residence in my roach bin a few months ago (when she was a tiny spiderling) and has been poaching a nymph every week or two. I let her stay, because it was cold outside, and I have more roaches than I need. But she is clearly stepping up her game with this kill, so it's time to relocate her.
Amaurobius similis (Presumably, not 100% sure on ID), with an eggsac. Caught this girl in my house late summer of '17. She molted shortly after collection and laid her eggsac around 2 weeks ago.
Adult female Eratigena atrica aka UK spider.
