While spiders are customarily spotted in dark corners, other signs point to spiders taking residency; Webs are often found nearby doors, windows, rafters, and wooden beams. Many of these webs may still contain the remains of insects that were caught and consumed. Egg sacs regularly turn up in garages, sheds, basements, and attics. Spiders are naturally attracted to areas of high humidity. If the home is already harassed by flies, roaches, and similar small insects, spiders will set up colonies in close proximity to these food sources.
