I keep finding these spiders in my house (usually dead, thank goodness) but I'm hoping to find out what kind it is, both for my peace of mind and so maybe I can do better at battling them. Every time I think I have it figured out, I google that type but the pictures won't look like the ones I first found.
I live in central Arkansas and this one I found in my bathroom today. I have previously found them in all areas that have tile or linoleum floors - though I know they are probably other places but I never seem to see them on carpet. My house is made of wood, there are no bushes of any sort within a foot of the house/foundation. Actually my lot is very shady and so I don't even have any grass within 4-6 inches of the foundation.
Any advice on controlling them would be appreciated.
