Spiders! Pah!! I must have killed about 20 redbacks since I got here.... loads of them int he garage of the new house we just moved into... OH spent this morning doing the fences... everytime the spray hit the fence, the noise had them scurrying out of their holes!
No.2 son thought it was hilarious watching his Dad about 12' away from the fence... I wasn't there.... one of us had to go to work!
I'm new to the group but just seen the pic of the spider..I'm a 33 yr old male and I would run out of the house and get a neighbour..I'd be bloody scared...are these in the city centre too?
Awwwwwwww you crule bugger.
Huntsman spiders are great and amazing spiders. I got bit twice the other night by the same sod but would never kill one. Use a blank DVD pot to cover them and the back off a cereal packet then let them go outside.
I look at it this way, Keep a few daddy long legs around the place and if they go missing then its a good sign that theres a huntsman or redback about somewhere.
If you do get bit by a huntsman it only feels like a bee sting and wont kill you.
There is NO WAY on earth I am ever going to be getting close enough to one for it to bite me!!

Hate spiders - I'm with Liz i'm afraid - it would get splatted after I'd picked myself up off the floor.
I have relatives over there and they were saying that if you have a huntsman you can keep it as a pet or sell it as they eat the smaller more dangerous types , a kind of deterant to the, red back, funnel, white tail, etc etc etc etc etc etc
