    I'd relocate him.
    That's a very loaded and dangerous thing to say. A bite can be fatal. If not fatal a bite can be a pretty big deal

    Red backs are dangerous. I know someone who was in intensive care following a red back bite.

    Sorry but Im not going to join the "kill it because I dont like it" camp.
    You kill that one in the garden (not like its inside), what difference does that make? None really, other than killing an animal.
    There's many, many more out there...in the garden, not your bedroom.
    You'd be better off teaching kids not to play in crowded areas of the garden where they like to live, as a life skill.

    These discussions never go anywhere anyway.
    Those who kill things do, and those that know its not the only one and the ecosystem is important, won't.
    No one ever seems to change their mind.

    Thanks for your responses. I have since found out it's actually a leaf curling spider. Either way, I hate getting spider webs on my hands so I'll get hubby to relocate it.

    Kill it. Well I would. Sod relocating it.

    I'd say redbacks are quite dangerous. I don't particularly like spiders though and don't much care about killing them.
