Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

There was a nest of spiders under my couch under where the console is. There were 2 big ones and an egg sack. I sprayed this one to get a picture but left the rest alone until I can figure out if they are harmless or harmful.

Looks like a Common House Spider, I could be wrong though. If so, it’s not harmful

Yes, she looks like Parasteatoda tepidariorum, a Common House Spider. They eat lots of insects and aren’t dangerous. They can live outdoors if you prefer that arrangement.
