Don't "squish" the poor creature, it's done nothing to you.
Point in fact you're lucky to have such a conscientious neighbor who has undoubtedly helped keep the riffraff down.
I always allow spiders to live in the house, so long as they stay out of my way & don't crawl on me while I'm sleeping, we're good.
Spiders are great house guests, they're quiet, normally confine themselves to out of the way nooks & will keep the peskier vermin to a minimum.
Especially living in Cali they're helpful with all the bloody ants there.
I used to live in the south bay of LA & the ants were terrible, finally got a couple spiders that set up residence in the kitchen, no more ants.
So again leave the fellow alone unless you're fond of flies & mosquitoes, & those are insects to dislike, pfft scavengers & parasites whereas spiders
are cunning predators.
