  • Spider Identification

    Can anyone ID this spider? I just caught the big ass thing in my house. It was about 1 1/2 inches long.

    looks like a common grass spider to me. They can get pretty big. I think the nasty Brown Recluse stays kind of compact compared to these harmless criters. But don't experiment with my non-expert advice. I would definitely seek other opinions.

          I don't think it's a recluse if that's what you are wondering.

            This is a Brown Recluse.

            This is a grass spider.

              similar but I don't think it's your culprit

                All the recluses I have seen have a white violin on their back.

                  I did not think it was I just want to know what it is.

                    If they're near an opening in my home, I just throw most of these bastards back outside and clean up the place. The cleaning part has nothing to do with germs as it does with the food chain - crumbs/debris = small insects = big insects... and I'm not keeping birds in my house to clean up the big insects

                          Funny, after I read this thread about two hours later I found one of these bastards in my living room floor. He was HUGE. I smashed the shit out of him.

                            I learned something new. I thought that was a wolf spider. I never heard of a grass spider before.

                              also close to a wolf spider, but I would think more on grass,

                              it's always fun to freeze them and flush them
