Steatoda nobilis maybe?

If that is the false widow spider (steatoda nobilis) then its bite is comparable to a bee or wasp sting.best just to leave it alone.

I don’t know the answers to those questions. It’s hard to know from only seeing one spider. If there’s an infestation odds are you would see way more than one.

Most spiders make their eggs in the fall before the spider dies in the winter. The eggs hatch and a ton of spiders are born. Good news is that they don’t stick around they tend to disperse and go pretty far away. But if you see any sacks in your house you probably want to get rid of them.
