    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.
    I call bull**** on this.

    It not because I don't like it. It could kill my kids. What difference does it make a freaking huge difference.

    Teaching kids to be careful and watchful of spiders and snakes is extremely important. Often they are in area that can't be seen.
    My son was bitten because he did see the snake hiding under the edge of his sandpit. Nobody would have seen it.

    Just because I want to keep my family safe doesn't mean the ecosystem is not important to me.

    Red backs are a big deal, they are deadly Kill it with fire OP. If it was a huntsman I'd say relocate it. It's a red back, don't risk it.

    Only on BH where people are guilt tripped for killing one of the world's most deadly spiders.

    Glad to hear it wasn't a redback

    Not all ecosystems are good, if you have redbacks, then you are likely to have black house and white tails, they like to eat each other. You will also not likely have beneficial garden spiders like leaf curlers and orb weavers. Daddy long legs are good, really good. They love eating red backs, so keep them around.

    As to redbacks only affecting people who allergic, that is not true, 2500 people are bitten each year and up to two thirds end up with systemic symptoms and require anti venom.
