Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Does anyone know what kind of spider this is? I've seen about 10 in my basement this year. There is no markings just a brownish red body and a grayish brown butt. I live in eastern washington. Thanks.

Looks like a mouse spider. Do they run fast?

Mouse spiders are quick and have strong fangs with a potent venom yield. They can produce quite painful and irritating bites. I would try lining you duct vents with fine mesh to block more spiders and their food sources from entering your home if you have lots of mouse spiders in the area.
