Spider ID?

Spider ID?

Postby Primogen » Thu Nov 07, 2013 6:46 am

Found this spider in my bed, and having been recently bitten by a sac spider, just want to make sure its not harmful.

Its pretty small only about 12-15mm leg span.

Nope not medically important. Dont worry.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Just a tip i found, apparently spiders hate Peppermint. Put some of its oil on cotton wool balls and place around the home. - I haven't tried this as yet so not sure if it works but a lot of people have commented saying it has.

That's an interesting one-looks like a Burrowing Spider to me...Could be wrong though-especially because it was found in your bed. Maybe the rare Duvet-Burrowing Spider... ;)
