Cellar spider. Hands down

DonMaldonado1417

There not dangerous at all there venom can’t harm humans (being allergic to spiders is a different story) and there actually famous for feeding on other spiders even ones a couple times it’s size I have two I keep as pets

I highly doubt it would even try biting you either they generally will just run away if disturbed by anything that is not prey and human is far from on the menu

Yep, I agree with DonMaldonado1417. A Cellar Spider (Pholcus sp.) and they’re beneficial for catching other less desirable bugs.
