If you don't anger them,they will leave you alone.

yeah @watcher570 that's what I read, that they aren't aggressive :-)

Still out there somewhere - didn't realise what it was at the time but thought it looked best left alone! Googled for it afterwards as it had very distinctive markings.

You may have already seen this fun fact from Wikipedia: "A specimen of S. grossa (painted with nontoxic blue and red stripes and "wrangled" by Steven R. Kutcher ("The Spider-Man Behind Spider-Man") was used as the spider that bit Peter Parker in the Sam Raimi-directed Spider-Man film released in 2002."
