Brown widow spider color ranges from tan to dark brown to black. They have a vivid orange or a yellowish color hourglass-shaped marking on the underside of the abdomen.
Widow spider bites are poisonous and painful, but rarely fatal. If you suspect that you have received a widow spider bite, seek immediate medical attention.
Cellar spiders are easily identified by their extraordinarily long and thin legs, which are attached to their elongate and thin body.
Parson Spider, Ground Spider, and Jumping Spiders are hunting spiders. They may be very fast moving spiders and commonly enter structures to hunt for food or harborage. They are primarily nocturnal, but when found in structures may be seen walking along floors, countertops, walls, or ceilings. They are capable of biting humans, but their venom is generally not considered dangerous.
