I agree with the Parson spider,they are not aggressive and not a medically significant spider. I usually put them outside. They are commonly found in homes.
Yes, an Eastern Parson Spider (Herpyllus ecclesiasticus). They’re not aggressive but they’re very fast and can bite in self defense if they feel trapped. To remove them try placing a cup on it and gently sliding a stiff piece of paper underneath and carry it outside.
