The Arachnophobe law - I dont visit your web, get out of my house
Excellent huntsman method for nervous nellies (my mum has one & this is her routine)
Strap large thong to old broom with duct tape so they cant hide in bristles
Put icecream lid with hole in on handle so they cant run up it
Spray thong with knock em dead immediately surface spray
Either bravely swat spider or hurl implement like spear and run away shrieking.
Hopefully the spray will contact Godzilla sized creature & it will drop dead onto the floor, shrinking into size of a sultana.
Showing this miniscule object to others will not enhance your hero status.
Like your method wiil have to try that one!!!!!
honestly there not that bad here in adelaide(they are huge in cairns!) we've been here 11 years and have had no major drama,s, there used to be classes in the uk where you could go and get over your phobia fear, my freind was so bad over there one night she wouldn't go in the house because there was a spider in the porch -poor thing she had to get the next door neighbour to remove it.
mostly huntsmans live outside and they don't bother you not like those awful daddy long legs you get over there!
Good luck don't listen to the scare mongerers
We solved the millipeed problem by using slug pellets and creating a barrier around the house , the other thing we used very successfully were coffee beans , apparently the caffeine induces a heart attack, a warning to us all!!

thanks for that, think i have just scarred my son for life!! ha ha I am assuming if you take all precautions in the house that you wont see that many around the house?? i have always been scared of spiders but have been working on my phobia for the last few months and can now successfully remove them from the house on my own, i am guessing you dont even atempt to touch these bad boys?? do you just spray them??
no problems the are harmless and the vaccumm cleaner gobbles them up very well
