Never much dealt with them where I hunt , so I’m somewhat unfamiliar with IDing them . Now where I live in Webster there’s many ticks although we seldom deal with them where I am  ,recently I’ve started to run on a trail , an old rail road bed,  so, pretty wide , it’s mostly gravel, dirt and the “ grass “ is mostly matted  down . I know ticks wait along trails in the grass ,but this seems like a somewhat unlikely spot ? 
 

After running the other day I cut the lawn which was pretty high . When showing I saw a small bug on the shower curtain, when I killed it , it was pretty bloody , wife found the bite mark on my back , I found another on the floor of the tub . So not sure if from lawn or trail .

Today I found bug # 1 in kitchen , when I went to put it in a baggie ,it was hopping , I’m guessing a tick ? Pic #2 was two mornings ago, I figured it was a small spider by the shape and movement . 

Thanks

Yup,  you're a dead man.  Best to burn the house down while there's still time to save the neighbors.

Those are classic examples of the Mexican Jumping Ocean Spider of Southern Sri Lanka.
