Identifying a spider needed

I am getting an unusual amount of different spiders in my home as temperatures are getting colder. I used to live in Grand Ronde, Oregon, and I was once bitten by a spider to where my arm swelled up, .and I had flu like symptom. I woundup going to the hospital. I never got a good look at the spider that bit me, except that it was dark in color. I moved to Arlington Oregon in Eastern Oregon almost three years ago, and in the three years never seen these two kinds of spiders in my home before. Can you please tell me if they are harmful and what the names of them are please?

I posted a picture of this spider last night. This morning I was able to get better pictures. He or she is on the toe of my I'm not wearing it :) I found this little/big guy in a glass that I have on a shelf by my bed. What kind of spider is he? Is he harmful to me or my pets (cats)? I'm not going to kill him even if he is poisonous. I'll just remove him from my home.

Treating chickens with permethrin; are eggs safe to eat?

My 10 hens ended up with lice. I was told to dust them with permethrin. Should I dust their 10x12' coop and nesting boxes too? Should I destroy the eggs they lay for a period of time or are they safe to eat? Thank you

What is this insect?

Several of these insects have found my front porch area. They don't seem to fly or swarm and aren't really much of a nuisance at this time. I'm mostly curious about them. Thank you.
