Hi there i have found three of these spiders in my house and they look pretty darn scary. Are the poisonous? Thanks

Scorpion Spider

Dear Charl Du Toit,
This distinctive spider is a Scorpion Spider.  Almost all Spiders have venom, but the bite of very few species is more than just a localized reaction with tenderness and some swelling.  We have never been able to locate any online information about the bite of a Scorpion Spider, which leads us to believe it is not a serious matter.
