I got mixed up outside with a big hairy brown spider late one summer. It strung a web between my pool ladder and a bush. I had to jump into the pool to get the web off me. The web looked vacant, but 8 hours later I had a raised circle of bumps on my forehead the size of a 1/2 dollar.

Off to see the doctor, got a steroid shot and a round of antibiotics. It receded quick but the spot took 4 months to go away. These spiders were diabolical, they put the webs up in the evening, took them down early in the day. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I had an old car shipped from Denver in 2014, got it home and found spider NESTS all along the frame rails and inside the brake drums. I was stripping the car down and something bit me on the hand, 2x on my ring finger and 1x on my hand. I took some Benadryl and from there the bites still itched and healed slow. It may have been a brown recluse and I only got a little venom. From there I power washed all the spider nests off the bottom of the car before doing anything else.

As others have said it's definitely a wolf spider. We get them in Georgia, and they are freakin huge, they do indeed jump, but are rather shy. I do not kill them, but I get them out of my house. I cant imagine much they couldn't I'm sure they are very beneficial.

Some of this depends on where you live. If you live in Australia, I have no idea but I would assume it's poisonous or otherwise dangerous. I believe you live in the US, in which case it probably is not since it is neither a Brown Recluse nor a Black Widow. I agree with the post that calls it a Wolf spider.

You "expanded" the spider. Wolf spiders don;t get this big.
