Comments & ID Thoughts

No guess on this on either? This guy/girl has taken up residence in my bedroom. He is a bit bigger than the other one I submitted that lives in my bathroom. As you see, it's already fed on a house fly. The interesting thing here is, it hasn't made it's Web in a Corner, it's literally used the bottom of an un-packed box and the floor next to my dresser to make it's Web and I fear my Pitbull getting bite if she walks to close? Please help identify before I try to relocate, thank you!

Hi, this tentatively looks like a Red House Spider, Nesticodes rufipes. They’re not considered to be of medical concern.
