    I kill all spiders dead dead dead 😱 terrified of them. My DH has gone away for work so of course there was a spider yesterday 😡 but don't worry I squished it with my shoe so it's ok now.

    So people are actually finding red backs INSIDE THEIR HOMES?

    We don't really get redbacks in the house here. I did find one the other week in a window track. And we get them on the balconies. I would be freaking out if they came in the house all the time! In my childhood home though we got a fair few.

    We get the occasional whitetail (I HATE those spiders with a vengeance).
    Mostly we just get huntsmans, which I don't like as they're so big and intimidating.
    We get lots of daddy long legs as well, which are fine to stay, except before an inspection I have to go around and get rid of them all as they look messy.


    Well still no sign of the huntsman. I think I'm going to pull the lounge out today and see if it's there. If it's not....

    Not in this house but when I lived in the ACT my garage was full of them. They lived in the kids bikes too.

    ETA I was always finding them in the laundry of a other house I lived in but fortunately the laundry was under the house so separate from the actual house.

    I let huntsmans and daddy long legs live. All others must die. We have redbacks in our toilet occasionally and I've had them in our walk in pantry. I drown those suckers with spray. We've had white tails a fair few times. They are killed every time. The only huntsman I've killed is the one who decided to join me in bed one night! That was a big no no!

    Yeah, our garage is full of them too. I won't even go in there (we don't park our cars in there, we just use it for storage).

    Any spider in my house must die.
    Pretty much an entire can of spray.... if I'm brave enough after that I put a container or the can over it. .. and leave until DH can remove the offender.

    I really hate spiders. Hate them.
