I live in Kansas (Pottawatomie County), and I found a spider crawling on a wall inside my bedroom:
I'm inclined to keep the spider in my house, but I just want to double check to see if it is venomous or dangerous.
The spider is approximately 3~4 cm long in size, and seemed to be in dark (possibly brownish) color. I saw it crawling on the walls once in the afternoon. And this time I saw it crawling at 10pm.
It doesn't appear to be a widow spider so I was a bit relieved. But could you please tell me what is the name of this spider species? And would it be dangerous to keep this creature in my house?
Thank you very much for your help!
