      huntsmen are bug killers...theyre so big you know where they are, you couldnt swallow them in your sleep cos you would wake up choking

      I'm not so sure a few names come to mind;);),

      We had a pet huntsman too Kat, he got in some funny shapes.....wasn't sure if he was maybe a contortionist spider,lol, they do shed their skin though.... looks like a new huntsman, but crunchy...Fred left us to the big wide world of the garden after he took a liking to the fruit bowl, it was either keep fred in the house or have the kids eat apples again. We've not seen a red back or white tip since we moved down here, touch wood. We killed loads in our OAA in Adelaide.

      Oh dear God. just the names make my skin crawl. I am still obssessively checking my shoes each morning, and checking in the bed before I get in at night. we have been here 11 weeks and I'm as phobic today as I was when I left the UK!!!

      We had our first spider in the house on Wednesday night and both FREAKED out. A quick spray of Mortein and he was curled up on the floor, then unceremoniously scooped onto a piece of paper and into the bin. He was about the size of a 2 quid coin and black, so small by Aussie standards, but any spider is enough to send me running!! We can't take the chance here, so we are spraying for England at the moment if anything moves in the house!!

      Mind you, I'm sure we'll chill out eventually, and maybe I really need to get a book on what's truly dangerous.

      it's not tha hard Traci, only the red back, which you seriously cannot miss. And the white tip are dangerous....but even that is a bit of an emotive debate as apparently a bite from a white tip is not dangerous to everyone....the rest will give you a nasty bite but won't kill you. Fiona
