Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I’m thinking poisonous spider the spider was found in large cage with Dagus in my living room. This past month I’ve found black widows in the house. My problem is that I tend to pick them up so I won’t hurt them, when putting them outside

Hi, this one looks like a triangulate cobweaver, Steatoda triangulosa. They are much less venomous to humans than black widows. They are in the same taxonomic family, Theridiidae. I don’t think it is a problem that you don’t hurt the black widows, it shows that you are thoughtful about your actions.
