    This insect was crawling on the ceiling- just want to confirm spider. Sorry it's not better quality - I'm short and the ceiling is tall. Thanks

    Looks like a spider to me! Definitely isn't a bedbug!

    Not an insect, but an arachnid. Yes, a spider, but can't say from the photos which spider species; there's many I can say that it's not. Too bad you're too short and ceiling too tall.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
