Comments & ID Thoughts

My house is filled with thick spiders that I am constantly catching and putting outside on a daily basis. This one happened to be crawling up my leg this morning and is lucky it didn’t get smashed. When I let him outside I found his coloring weird mostly because the other spiders I see look the same but are more black than gray. I don’t know anything about spiders that aren’t black widows and now that I live amongst so many I am very curious.

This is the Giant House Spider, Eratigena duellica, part of the Funnel Web Weaver family Agelenidae.
