So like I've killed 7 black spiders about the size of maybe a nickel give or take a dime... They are all black. What are they?

all black. don't seem to be big. finding them in my finished basement I just moved in. should I be worried/concerned for my safety? I'm scared of spiders. due to my past.

Thanks so much I hope it's not deadly but killed so many.. I'll just have bug control come out and identify them. They don't seem to be agressive so I'll hope for the best.

That's what I thought originally... But didn't want to jump at the idea... I haven't seem to find one black with a marking on it's back though... And aren't big and don't seem to be threatening. But then again a lot of spider don't seem to be but have bites that are vicious

I'm back. We made a turn around trip. It wasn't fun driving in all that traffic at night with it raining. I don't think I'd like doing that again. Just thankful to be home safely. Thanks for caring. ;)

There are lots of harmless black spiders. Even friendly ones. It's impossible to know the type you're dealing with, without good pictures.

Not me, Mrs. Reesinator. I swear she has something in her biochemistry that draw them to her. How many times has a spider ever dropped down right in front of your face in the car? I can count on one hand the number of times I've ever seen any creepy-crawly in my car. This happens to my wife every week.
