    Wife (Riponian) found it as we were getting ready for bed. Although they're quite big, they're relatively harmless and they do eat the other (nastier) spiders, so I generally don't kill these ones - just chuck them outside. This is the second one with had in the bedroom, we 'bombed' the house before we moved in, but I guess these things are so quick the poison hasn't affected them yet.

     

    You do get used to the creepy crawlies after a while, at least once you know what they are.

    I know its not as good as yours but we have found THREE red backs this week.

     

    One of them was in our daughters bedroom the others were under the rim of the bin.

    We have just mortar bombed the house and the amount of dead or about to die creatures was shocking!!

    Nope, he's wandering around the front yard somewhere - there's a few in the back garden and I occasionally have to fish them out of the pool, although they do seem to float!

    Crap! My usual method here in Blighty is a pint glass and a post card and then out the front/back door. Think i'm gonna need a bloody pirex bowl with the Huntsman! Eeeek! Don't like the idea of killing any living creature though.

    A Bucket and door mat are the required equipment:biglaugh:

     

    It's only every 6th animal that is life threatening anyway,can't see what you are worried about.;)

    We don't have any glasses big enough to catch them - had to use one of my sons toy tubs to catch this one.

    Hi ya. All I can say is EURGGHHH

    Had to watch that even though it was torture. Also jumped when it moved. Know having to get used to that soon but absolutely hate spiders. Hubbie is going to have to do a lot of killing. I have only just got to the stage of being able to use glass and card and it has taken me nearly 30 years to get that far. i am also bawling my eyes out a that same time when getting ride as hate them moving.

    Truly gross

    He was quite small for a Huntsman. I hate them coming into the house, but we have a few in the garage and we leave them to get on with things. They're quite useful as they feed on all the other creepy crawlies, and unlike a lot of spiders in this country, they are harmless to us.
