How to get rid of spiders?

I Hate SPIDERS. I live in East PA. this thing had to be 2 inches long. Just the body when the legs were out I'd say it was a good 4 inches. It was balled up I thought it was a leaf. Then the sucker moved. I just SCREAMED man to the rescue. I'd like to have a natural killer for in the house. I have a Tea Cup Chi. So I have to be careful of what I use. I do have other spiders but this one was the King of all. Last month I was bit and had to go to the doc. That's how I knew the bite was a spider bite. I terrified of these things. I also live in a wooded area right by a river. Please Help and I'm sorry for the long story. Sorry no pic thought of it after it was smashed.
