Found this spider in my laundry room. I very rarely see inverts in my house other than ants and daddy long legs. Can someone help out? It was found in eastern Canada if that helps. It was about 1/4"-1/2".
@thebronzedragon "Daddy long legs" is another common name for cellar spiders, so that might be why you're confused. "Daddy long legs" can refer both to cellar spiders and also harvestmen, which aren't actually spiders and don't make webs. Neither of you are wrong, common names are just confusing!
As for this spider, that's definitely a wolf spider of some sort.
I do a lot of catch and release if it is found in my house. I move Lactrodectus away from the house if they are in a place my kids might get bit outside. Been there and wouldn’t want my children to know what that is like.
But that brown one of yours, catch, keep, study, and enjoy.
