Comments & ID Thoughts

I'm not sure what this spider is. It's been hanging out on my bathroom wall for three days. I'm hoping it's not a brown recluse.

Hi, this is a Running Crab Spider (Philodromidae).

It sounds like you’re kicking a teenage son out of your house.

When I removed spiders from our house to the outdoors for my husband I used the phrase, “She’s going to a NICER place.” It was the truth without death implications.
