Comments & ID Thoughts

I see these crawling my floors all the time. Hopefully they’re not poisonous. They are about the size of a penny or dime with leg span.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Wolf Spider (Lycosidae) in the genus Schizocosa. Like most spiders they have venom but are unlikely to bite except in self defense and are not considered to be of medical significance. Everyone’s immune system is different though.
