Can someone tell me what spider this is?

Asked May 22, 2018, 12:18 PM EDT

This spider was just found in my home, and was originally the size of a small apple before death. I want to make sure it isn’t poisonous or something I need to treat.

This appears to be a grass spider (also known as funnel web spider), they are common in Kentucky and make sheet like webs. These are not dangerous, just relocate them outside.
