What Spider is This???

It is the largest spider I've seen here, with an egg sac.

You might ave better luck asking on https://www.reddit.com/r/spiders/ or https://spiderid.com/

I'd suggest using a camera on macro mode (and maybe a flashlight) for a better picture.

Looks like a house spider. There's one that I catch that has similar stripes on it's legs. Like a tiger. lol How big is it by your estimation? Get a wide cup and catch it. I catch all the spiders in my house. I'm a professional now. lol Some of their behavior is pretty interesting.

Some guy tried to set a snake on fire and burned down his house, from what I heard.

Panic much?


My friend and I built a cabin in PA. He had flypaper hanging from the ceiling.

A bat come out of the Franklin stove and got caught in the flypaper.

He thought it'd be a good idea to make a torch out of hairspray and a lighter.

HUGE burn marks on the ceiling....

About a 50 cent piece.

I wouldn't move her. She's happy there and is pregnant.

If it's a wolf spider I believe you'll find that it's eyes will reflect a flashlight in the dark. Also, once that egg sack hatches, the babies will attach themselves to her. Another cool feature is that wolf spiders can hunt on water.

Looks like a wolf spider! If the egg sack hatches and the babies are attached to the thing they(100’s) will scatter everywhere!

The only good spider is a DEAD spider!

Looks like a wolf spider or a common house spider to me, although not knowing the scale, hard to say.

Electronic fly swatter from Harbor Freight...doesn't cost much, crazy effective, lasts for years, and so much fun!!! I've had mine for well over a decade and a half and I love it!

Spiders go...SNAP, CRACKLE, POP!
