I live in Australia, which amongst others has the large and hairy Huntsman spider that roams around and about.
It’s not considered dangerous, it’s actually rather passive for the most part, but it’s big and ugly and freaky looking.
I don’t see them very often, but they do occasionally take up residence in a house, and one did so yesterday. About 8cm span including its longest legs.
It was a bit freaky at first, but he just sat on the wall all day. Until the evening when he started to move about a bit and ended up on the ceiling right above my computer desk.
Next morning I checked the ceiling and walls and he was gone. Not in the kitchen, or on my desk either.
So I switched on my monitor.
Yipe! There he was! Hanging its legs over the edge of my screen.
So I didn’t know how to deal with it. Ignore it? Tap at it until it moved away? I wanted to scoop it up and remove it from the house, but somehow do it while standing ten feet away at all times. Not really that easy to achieve.
In the end I draped a towel over it, thinking I’ll wrap it inside and then scoot it out quickly, letting it sort itself out without my supervision. Good theory, rubbish in practice, as he just scuttled out of the way of most of my attempts, and in the end I haven’t managed to shift him.
He’s currently sitting on the back of my monitor, dormant, and for me it’s “out of sight, out of mind” until he re-emerges sometime later today.
