    Spiders crawl across your face as you sleep in Sydney: The terrifying stats

    We have a family of Huntsman spiders living in a blackbutt tree about 5 metres from the front door of the farm house
    If you look into crack in the main trunk sometimes you can spot big mama eye boggling ya
    Always at least 2 or 3 (visible) in the house, Iíve found them on my face a couple of times (must like the beer I drink), in the washing, cutlery, one even got into the fridge, it was a bit slow for half an hour when I grabbed it out
    If you watch them youíll see them hunting insects you didnít even know were there
    Great for the mozzies at night time (maybe thatís why there on my face), Iíve seen them hunting mozzies on the ceiling, moths and all sorts of things
    My boys play with them, carry them
    around on there body try and scare the missus, throw them off the roof, put them in ice cream containers with other insects and give it a shake
    They still always give me the heebies when I first see them

    I remember when I was a very young boy, I went to the kitchen picking up a big bowl for the meal only to find out a big long and hairy black 8 legs with a bag of white eggs underneath. My dad was hearing me screaming running out of the kitchen and thrown the bowl broken away. Lol

    I once had one have a heap of babies (est 50+)which all sauntered across the kitchen ceiling.

    Of course SWMBO freaked out so I nuked them and then we had a blizzard of silk threads and scurrying around the floor until they succumbed.

    Worse was one of those white cross spiders, which I hit with a thong only to release hundreds of babies from her back, which took numerous thong strikes and chemical attack to subdue.

    As already confirmed, a small Huntsman spider, or moulted exoskeleton.
    Many years back, heading out for the day with entire family onboard, my wife k\let out a blood curdling scream. I nose dived the car to a halt nad asked what was wrong. Wife trembling pointed to a very, very large Huntsman spider on the windscreen. It was outside, so I very manly promptly leapt out of the car and swiped the spider off the screen. No harm to the spider , but i was in agony. The spines on the body of the spider had lodged ih the backs of my fingers. It was many days until the pain subsided.
    I now carefully trap such in a container for removal if required.

    But that's to be expected in a Deefer, a bloody possum could almost get through the various holes and gaps What name of this spider?

    I used to have at least one Huntsman running around inside the old girl at any one time, but in a Disco it's a very different scenario for some reason? What name of this spider?What name of this spider?What name of this spider?

    I swear I will sell my 03 Td5 Manual if this one stays in my car. My blood will be frozen by ADN whenever this 1cm body size and 10cm leg size staring at me.
