Hi, this is a Brown Widow, Latrodectus geometricus.

Possibly.

Thank you for your concern for the spiders. Cobweaver spiders, such as brown widows, prefer dark enclosed places. They have poor vision and use chemoreception and sense of touch to navigate. They like to be in cabinets, under furniture (like yours), in compost bins and any dark moist safe place where there are crawling insects and other arachnids to eat.
