Unknown spider

So i dont know what this spider is, and ive never seen it in my house before. It's a small spider like really small and it has lines going across the abdomen and an oval shape on its head but not connecting at the bottem and the legs are short and stubby. Its like light brown and the legs close the bottom it turns black. If it was one color it would look like a big ass tick. And I just im afraid if i kill it that baby spider will come out and i hate spider i dont want to have to kill one if i dont need to. What do i do?

Hello, I am growing a grape mix of Texas green and California Concord and these little things have ABSOLUTELY destroyed my crops. How do I kill these filthy pests? I pruned my vines and I sprayed the removed vines with 409 Multi Cleaner and still NOTHING. They’re crawling about and breeding on top of my trash can. P.S. they sting if you touch them and they’re so tiny, they can be anywhere
