Southern House Spider (Male)

If you see one of these guys running on your walls, don't panic. They are blind and harmless, and most likely seeking a mate. As far as candidates to fill the spider niche in your house, you really can't beat these guys. They will easily outcompete potentially dangerous spiders. You can spot the males by their extremely long mandibles (they look like two extra legs near the "mouth").
