Wolf spider, aka Huntsman spider. Not web builders. Run down their prey at night. Like to hide in the human ear.

If you are a mouth breather at night, they like to get cozy in your mouth also.
Something about the dark damp place that makes them feel secure as they wait and listen for prey to come by.
They know when you are about to wake up so they leave just before you come too.

Snakes are in, spiders are out. My pal Bifen takes care of the crawling critters.

Good old wolf spider. I have a ton in my garage, dammit. Big and scary, but very weak venom.

That moment when you walk into a spider web and... instantly become a Judo master.

It looks like a giant by the photo, if it's that big I'd kill it not knowing if it was dangerous or not. Now knowing I'll just stay away.

How many of y'all wake up and don't have any boogers in your nose? You can thank the wolf spider, he slips around at night and uses those long hairy legs to reach deep and clean your snout out. Ever woke up from something tickling your nose? Some folks will have a hard time sleeping now lol. In all seriousness spiders eat a lot of nasty bugs that would otherwise take over our homes and property. We only see a few spiders to the actual numbers that are around us.

This pic gives you idea of size, more than 3" long tip of the legs. I'm with the ones that don't kill spiders and snakes for their usefulness but if they are in the house (and I've had both) they are dead.

This is at my SIL's mothers house and my daughter was freaking out as we were having a discussion about which breakers to turn off for the generator. She said "let's make this quick!"

I've never seen a wolf spider that big, usually a fraction of that size.

That's one ugly spider. Wiki says the body can be 1.38" and it has a crazy amount of eyes.....if you had a GoPro camera in your ear or nose, this is what it would see:
