We found this in our bed and although I think it is a spider, I just want to make sure it’s nothing that we should be concerned about. Thank you in advance and I look forward to hearing from you.
This is a harmless Jumping Spider in the family Salticidae. Jumping Spiders do not build webs to snare prey. They use their excellent vision to stalk prey, often pouncing from a great distance. You have nothing to fear.
