Daddy long leg spiders, you may find one on your garage, home or patio, but do not be afraid. Like most spiders, this one is a non-aggressive spider, and will not come after you. Not only that, but it only carries a small amount of venom for their hunting. They typically kill and eat other insects, such as the fly and mosquito. They are basically helping you, by eating other nuisances!
It’s best to leave daddy long legs alone, they normally hang out up high away from everything, and won’t be going out of their way, to get in yours. Next time you see one, maybe relocate it instead of smashing it, these spiders are harmless to humans, and are not generally a pest.
