Hi, there are better places for it than your bedroom. Cobweaver spiders may bite in self-defense if they are pressed against your body. That could happen in your clothes or bedclothes. There is probably more food and moisture for it in a kitchen or cellar. Mine live in the kitchen under the cabinets and refrigerator. They also live outdoors in my compost bin and a storage shed. They have venom that is very lethal to insects and other arachnids. There are other spiders that can live well in a bedroom.
