Hobo Spider - Tegenaria agrestis

I was lucky enough to find both a female and male of this species.  I found the female with her herringbone pattern at an old compost bin that was down by the lake.  She was guarding her egg sac which always incorporates soil or other matter in between the silk.  The male I found in the kitchen.  This species gets a bad rap as being aggressive, but it would rather retreat and hide.
