Looking for some experienced advice here...I am new to Australia and its wonderful 8 legged celebrities...yesterday I was hosing down the outside chairs and found what I now know to be a male redback...I mistook it as although had red mark I have seen pics of redback and looked nothing like it...(didnt realise big black ones were females only)
SO MY QUESTIONS ARE:
Is it poisonous too?
Does it mean there are some horrid deadly females about?
Where would I need to look for them?
and apart from spraying can you kill them any other way??
I have so far been so lucky with our house (it is old one) as I have only seen a couple of house spiders (big but not too scary) and lots of daddylonglegs and money spiders.
Now I am freaking about redbacks...so any advice gratefully received!!
