Certain species of these seemingly benign spiders invade webs of other spiders and eat the host, the eggs or the prey. In some cases the spider vibrates the web of other spiders, mimicking the struggle of trapped prey to lure the host of the web closer. Pholcids are natural predators of the Tegenaria species, and are known to attack and eat redback spiders and huntsman spiders. It is this competition that helps keep Tegenaria populations in check, which may be advantageous to humans who live in regions with dense hobo spider populations.

I had to kill him. I couldn't bare the thought of him running around my house, plus, technically speaking, he's a squatter. He made a hell of a mess on the floor too. Seriously, I was shaking in the lead up to the 'strike' as he was real close to the fridge and would have easily made it under there had I missed. Ive got that clammy, relief, adrenaline feeling now..
