- Hi, this spider has been emerging at night high on the walls in my bedroom for the last couple of weeks. It concerns me mainly because I'm trying to lease out my room for when I go overseas in a couple of weeks, and at least one potential taker was put off by the thought of spiders. Could you please help me identify this one and perhaps give some advice on what to do with it? It's about 12cm wide and hangs out near the ceiling. I attached a picture.
