Comments & ID Thoughts

I took this in the new house we’re moving into in Benton, LA. It was so big I saw it in the dark. I about had a heart attack. It’s in the country. We don’t have anything moved in yet. The landlord had a professional spray so there were lots of dead bugs we had to clean up. But not this one it was completely alive and did not move very fast. Can anyone tell me what it is? The only other spiders I found alive around it we’re daddylong legs
