Comments & ID Thoughts

Found this spider under my step stool that was sitting in a garage for a while. Not sure what it is plus the two egg sacks I don't want hatched in my home.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a Western Black Widow, Latrodectus hesperus. I don’t know if those eggs belong to it.
