Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Found in Avon, Utah. Had red eyes. Looked like it had a bit of fuzz on legs, but didn't look like a tarantula to me. We sprayed it with bee spray and it nearly killed it. I turned a lot more black after being sprayed. We've never seen anything like it and have been here 20 years.

Impossible to ID because it has been killed and sprayed so we can’t see any details.
If it has a pair of big forward facing eyes (and 6 other smaller ones) it is a wolf spider of some kind (theere’s wolf spiders of many sizes)
At this time of year it could also be a male Mygalomorph, such as a tradoor spider, above ground to seek out females to mate with.
One thing for sure, it is harmless!
There’s no need to kill any creature, catch and relocate, or use water pipe to scare it away.
Spiders are benificial predators to have around.
