    Squish first,,ID later doesn't work. Only 2 genus of spider in north America might pose risk.

    House spiders are not in this group and usually very harmless.

    Sad people don't understand spiders and kill them needlessly, they are the good guys and should be welcomed in homes. No they don't bite unless mashed against the skin.

    Almost all spiders are venomous or poisonous. But the good news is that in North America there are only two spider species that are dangerous to humans. That would be the black widow and the brown recluse.
