Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider was found in my mailbox. A lot of it's webs were inside the mailbox too, but at the time I killed the spider, it was not actually in it, but very close to it. Yesterday I found what appeared to be a few eggs webbed inside the mailbox too. The picture is the spider dead on the street (I put it there after I killed it in the mailbox).

This is a Barn Funnel Weaver, they are not dangerous donĀ“t worry. And next time I would recommend a less destructive form of removing it, possibly getting a cup and moving it somewhere else next time.

Grass Spider (Agelenopsis sp.), same family (Agelenidae/Funnel Weavers) but different genus from Barn Funnel Weavers (Tegenaria domestica).
