Comments & ID Thoughts

Been bit twice in last 2 months while in bed with caused some very nasty welts. Lifted up bed and found this little guy dead. He definitely appears to be a baby. Any ideas?

Hi, this might be an immature or a male Common House Spider (Parasteatoda tepidariorum). Hard to be sure given the condition it’s in.
