thanks for letting us know. So its not poisonous then?
Every spideris venomous, however most are not medically significant. This spider is not medically significant and outside your home or wherever it is will provide a great resource for decreasing pesky insects. The females stay in the web, males will leave theirs to find a mate.
*most spiders are venomous. Don’t forget spiders in the family Uloboridae are not venomous.
