Unknown spiders in SFG vermicomposting Bucket

Post  has55 on 3/24/2016, 9:13 pm

I'm asking the SFG forum members or public if they can identify the spiders within the garden vermicomposting bucket to see if it's a type of garden spider or one that is dangerous.

Towards the bottom of the Wikipedia article it says no envenomation, so sounds like he is a good guy, eating other Arthropoda.

Found this too:
http://lancaster.unl.edu/pest/resources/triangulatespider.shtml

"Recently, we have had a number of phone calls asking about the seriousness of this very common spider. There have been no known cases of human envenomation by S. triangulosa. Experts don't consider it to be a medically important spider."
