We have Huntsman spiders in Florida. Heard they came into Miami with bananas years ago. I've had many near and in my house, they are a little disconcerting because of their size, but otherwise no problem. I got bit by one because I was messing with it and trying to get it out of the house, the bite didn't hurt too bad and they aren't poisonous. They call them Housekeeping spiders in the country. Apparently, they keep all other bugs out of a house.
