    Opened the door this morning to let a bit of air in, left the fly screen shut, closed the door 10 mins later to find a bloody big spider on the wall!!!!

    Hubbie caught it and after googling spiders, found we had our very firsy Huntsman, a Banded Huntsman with stripes on his legs and bloody big 'crab pincers'

    He was a beauty, the kids loved it!!! He is safe and sound in the back garden - hopefullt eating the other spiders as we speak!!

    We have been here 6 months now and feel officially Ozzie now!!!!:jiggy:

    Scary when you see them for the first time but they are good spiders as they eat the nasty ones. :notworthy:

    Tell me about it!!! :shocked:we had a huge one appear upstairs in our lounge area and hubby had to run across the sofas to catch it, before it jumped into the Christmas tree !!! we let it go on the front lawn and felt very proud of ourselves, as normally we kill everything... just then a big bird swooped down and took him away:huh:

    I have a huntsman living in or on my car at the moment, it managed to get into the front interior light, don't know how it managed to get in there, I looked up and saw a large shadow above me, had to take the light down to let it out. also seen it walking along the outside of the windows whilst I'm driving, they must have good grip to hang on at 100kph lol.

    after a few nights of imagining 8 legged creatures, i had my house sprayed by southern suburbs pest control, hey presto, no nasties for the next 6 months, the amount of dead creepies that fell out of crevices was amazing, can sleep at night again. dont like spiders in the house, can cope with them outdoors,(bit like my kids really) lol hxx

    Baby huntsman right next to my bed last night. I used to Hoover spiders in the UK then shut the Hoover in the spare room. No way I could do that coz they're too big. Ended up chasing it under the bed with a can of raid. Didn't want to kill it but no way can I share a room with one :S

    Get a cat Michelle! Mine has great fun with anything creepy and crawly - even ate an earwig to protect me the other day!! If he found a huntsman, I could probably cut down on catfood for a week or so!!
