    Yeah me too. I just hit bugs with my shoe and I leave spiders in the house to eat the other bugs. Love spiders

    I haven’t seen any, just little jumping spiders and daddy long legs mainly. We used to gets heaps of red backs in WA, I used to kill those (with my shoe ).

    And you didn't fall off?? I really hate myself for being afraid of spiders - I think they're quite cool really, as long as they're nowhere near me or my children - but having one on me....😳

    Yes, just the regular stuff, nothing hardcore.

    You are so right! When we relocated from Canberra, I was un-packing the removal boxes and all the kids outdoor toys etc were covered, and I mean covered in redbacks! They survived a move interstate, plus closed boxes eeep!

    Redback spiders were bad in Canberra. We had a bad patch were the kids bikes were covered in them. The pest guy said they came in on the wind.

    Oh lord. On the wind. I'm forever doing sweeps of everything outside before the kids touch it. We recently had a massive one on the trike.
