Greenhouse spiders are creeping me out

I have a 6x8 HFGH so the ceiling is rather low. Lately, I've noticed a specific type of spider wandering around up there...a black, compact spider about the size of a dime with a few white markings on the back. It creeps me out so much that I immediately leave whatever I was doing in there and don't work up the courage to go back in til the next day. Its really pathetic! I don't want to kill it, since A) its pointless...more would just move in and take its place, and B) I know the spiders are beneficial to the GH.

I don't mind spiders whatsoever outside in nature, but somehow, when they're inside a structure with me, my arachnophobia really kicks in. Anyone else have this issue?
