I’m not one for spiders. And I definitely didn’t invite this one on my bath towel this morning! Can someone identify it for me? We’ve had a few (though smaller) about lately. Thanks.

Sorry, Roger. This is most definitely not a jumping spider.

It is Orb weaver season. This past week in my garden I have narrowly missed bumping into several webs with tiny young Orb weavers at the centers. As many spiders as I have all throughout my garden and house, I have yet to see an Orb weaver wander into my house. That said, it wouldn't surprise me if they came to visit. I relocate any spiders I think may come to harm in my house. If they're in the bath tub or kitchen sink, I have my handy-dandy "Bugbuster" to rescue them and set them free outside. Go, little spiders, be free, I say, and enjoy your tiny lives.

The 2nd one resembles what I have heard called jumpers pretty harmless...They are all over the place.

From the hairs, length of third legs, and shape of abdomen, I'd wager it's a type of orb weaver. Always a bit of a surprise to find inside, but harmless enough. It probably would rather be out eating insects in your garden.
