Cellar spider

Asked July 1, 2020, 7:59 AM EDT

A cellar spider crawled up on my bed and came at me for no reason I can understand. Can you explain why a spider would do that I'm actually shaking as I write this.

Normally, cellar spiders are not aggressive. This may have been an unusual circumstance. For information on them, refer to this publication: https://www.uky.edu/Ag/CritterFiles/casefile/spiders/cellar/cellar.htm
