An annoying 8 legged friend

There's a wood spider the size of a baseball living in my bedroom, more specifically my closet. I want him gone ASAP, but I cant catch it, just too fast for me. I know there beneficial and all and I let them do there thing at my shop, but in my house is too far.

Bug people any suggestions?

I snagged one by my laundry basket the other night. Used a tissue and threw him in the toilet. Dozens of babies cames floating off him. Down the hatch. Just spray him with raid next time you see him.

I can usually use the cup method. Put the cup over top of it, then slide a piece of thin cardboard between the cup and wall to trap it. Yours sounds too fast, and large. You'd need more like a 5-gallon bucket
