Cellar spiders are frequently found in dark, damp places such as cellars, basements, crawlspaces, and outbuildings. They typically construct a loose, irregular-shaped web in a dark corner. Cellar spiders continually add to their web, which can result in extensive webbing. The male and female live together in a web and can be found hanging upside down in it. They shake the web violently when alarmed. Cellar spiders can quickly establish large populations in a structure.
Cellar spiders have very long, slender legs (up to 2 inches long). Their body is about 1/3 inch long and pale colored (whitish-yellow to gray). They are sometimes confused with daddy-long-legs.

Not sure if this is where I post this at but I need some help in identifying this spider I found while crawling around under my house, There were tons of webs but only a few of these buggers, I have looked at lots of sites but cannot seem to find any info. I would like to know if it is these that are biting us at night while sleeping.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is a photo I snapped of it....(the best I could get)
