Just ognore my last re Hunstmen - Ok - so they CAN bite humans, but it looks like you should be OK unless its multiple, repeated bites, which seems to be extremely rare!!
We are due over to NSW in about 9 weeks and i have done sooooo well not to even look at these threads about spiders...... and then today, BAM !......gone and done it Think i was in a relaxed mood after 4 days of celebrating the jubilee !....... i soooo hate them but have tried to block them from my mind..... its the huntsmen that worry me, cos of their size...... but thats enough now, im gettin off this thread...... im covered in goosebumps already arrggghhhhhhhhhh
We are in Sydney, been here 8 weeks and found our 1st redback on Saturday... We was trying to work out how all the pool plumbing works, used some jet things on the side for the first time and out it popped.
Husband scooped it up it the pool net and promptly jumped on it!!
No huntsman yet.... I'm dreading that one, must say since finding the spider I have been checking everywhere!!
