Male Spitting Spider
Scytodes thoracica


male spitting spider

The reason I can find these spiders in my house now is because
 I take no tiny yellow spider for granted. I used to assume
they were Yellow Sac Spiders.  Now I assume they are Spitting
Spiders if they are very small and slow-moving and hanging
out in the bathroom, along the baseboard, in the tub, or on the
ceiling of said room.  I have carpet throughout
most of the house
so maybe that's why I find them so easily in the bathroom
where it's tiled.  This one was actually on the hall wall inching
 its way down from the thermostat.  © Carol Davis 7-1-2020

I'm sure my cats find them in other places besides the bathroom
because they are always tracking spiders. This male Spitting
Spider, was hanging out in the tub - probably dropped
 in for a drink.
