Do house spiders attack each other?

“Well, most spiders are not very tolerant of each other. So they maintain a territory—their web. And they'll maintain it from intrusion by other members of their species. And so, they'll have contests, they'll fight each other, they'll cannibalize each other.

Moreover, do house spiders eat each other?

Spider cannibalism is the act of a spider consuming all or part of another individual of the same species as food. In the majority of cases a female spider kills and eats a male before, during, or after copulation. Cases in which males eat females are rare.

Additionally, how do spiders interact with each other? From the books I've read, spiders communicate via pheromones, which are chemical cues they release. They also communicate by touch and leaving trails of silk along the ground. Every spider can leave its' scent on a strand of web, and other spiders can read these chemical cues to learn about the spider that left it.

Also to know, can two spiders live together?

A social spider is a spider species whose individuals form relatively long-lasting aggregations. Whereas most spiders are solitary and even aggressive toward other members of their own species, some hundreds of species in several families show a tendency to live in groups, often referred to as colonies.

Do spiders know when you are looking at them?

They have setae (sensory hairs) that can pick up low frequency vibrations and tactile information. Scientists don't generally call this hearing. Their setae can not determine distance or position. Spider 'feet' can sense low frequency vibrations from the web when they are holding it.
