Yeah I wouldn't be worried at all to have moldy spiders around the house, it's the parasites that get me.

It isn't moldy, he just sprayed the spider to death with bug spray - which is when the gordian worm abandoned ship.

Also, at first I read the title as "One of nature's less heartworming tales."

Everyone knows you have to kill it with fire. Stupid cameraperson.

Every time I see these parasites I am always left wondering how there is room for anything else in the hosts

All the worm would have had to do to kill the spider is expand..

There isn't room.

The growing worms absorb nearly all nutrition the hosts take in, leaving them just enough to survive. Then they start eating the internal organs leaving only the nervous system and locomotive muscles. Then they release chemicals that cause the host to drag itself into a small body of water. The worm exits the body and starts the life cycle anew.

It's likely the reason the person saw the spider walking around the house was because the worm had matured to the point it had plugged itself into the dying spider's brain and was piloting it towards water.

Piloting the host to water?? Good lord.
