    The photo is a little blurry, but it could well be a male Steatoda nobilis. They wander around looking for mates & do end up indoors from time to time.


    Make a cone out of a sheet of paper, fold over the pointed end so the spider can't drop through, scoop the spider off the wall & put him back outside. They're not aggressive, nor dangerous & bites are usually the result of a spider being trapped against the skin, nevertheless, his wandering habit means that it is prudent to put him outside.
