If it's big it's probably a huntsman and they are harmless.
Get a dog, they'll do the same.
I think Australia is probably skewing the stats there. Spiders there are, on average, a square metre in size. And there's 131 of them in any given house.
I've got one in my garage that spins his web around my washing line, when you shake the line he comes running out, clever little fecker, imagine his disappointment when he runs out and sees me
I woke up with ‘spiders legs’ in my face this morning NICE
sorry my mistake,they are my eyelashes “what am I like” great night though
YOU IS ALL POOFS
lovely boy lovely boy
I don't mind spiders, me. Useful little things and amazing to watch. Remind me to upload my close up video of one weaving it's web one day. Ingenious.
But put me anywhere near a Cockchafer, and I'll run a mile screaming.
They are huge, dumb, hairy flying things, that have no sense of direction but somehow go straight towards your head.
One of these at speed could knock a person clean out.
Check out the furry eyebrow things on the antennae too. Absolutely nuts they are:
Woke up with this in my chalet one morning in Namibia
No problems with spiders. Snakes however
You forget to mention how much noise they make
Agree. They're the nighttime wildlife equivalent of the lowered Vauxhall Nova with ridiculous exhaust
At last! My flying furry eyebrowed mucka returned tonight.
Vaping out the back, I heard the unmistakable clatter of its wings and it flew straight for my swede again.
Attracted by the security light I was sitting under, it continued to make a complete arse of itself, bashing into stuff, spinning around and getting stuck on its back. They are really are the dumbest of things.
Here's a photo of it on its back:
And here he is doing the crazy legs breakdance thing:
This week I've been trapped in a room twice with one of these airborne idiots, being all massive and flying completely aimlessly into everything.
I had to wait it out until it landed then find a receptacle to trap the buggers in, what I found is these little sods have a surprisingly strong grip!
