    I agree Deputy Dog. If I had a spider of that size in my house I'd really consider AT LEAST .22 rat shot to use on it! :eek: Sheet rock is easy enough to repair. ;)

    Everything that grows in Australia is weird, dangerous and oversized.

    ponycart, If I found a spider that big in my house it would be no 22 nothing, it would be a 12 gauge with an ounce and a 1/8 of 8s. Then I would fix the drywall, carpet or what ever, but the spider would be gonzo.:D

    I didnt jump, I actually thought that was funny. If that was a funnel web from Australia he better have went to the hospital VERY fast.

    huntsman will give you a good case of double ended evacuations ;)

    dehydration is the big worry other than that its the embarrassment and uncomforableness of blowing both ends at once .. but its over in a couple hours if your smart

    funny thing is kids dont get as sick , they throw up get a feveer and be ok in 2-4 hours

    As far as spiders go, it is a beauty. You don't have to believe this, but what we call common house spiders, are that big here. Not harmful, just spooky.

    After dad's reaction, the kid will probably be terrified of all of them.

    just our's will kill you ;) or make you bloody sick for a while and the necrosis inducing one ones , they scare me worst of all ... , they dont kill you , just make you rot to death over 10-20 years with a bad bite .. a light one will leave with ulcer type wounds for life that dont heal

    Unfortunately , the brown recluse ,or "fiddleback" spider is extremely common here. They also love to get into clothing or any dark place(hence the name recluse) to hide.I took down my shop apron last year to do some work and after I got it all tied up, a fiddleback dropped out the bottom! I check all my hanging cloths or stored ones verrrry carefully now! I actually prefer to see a Blackwidow as they make a very easily recognizable web.:eek:

    There is not even the most remote chance that I would EVER get that close to a monstrosity like that. Make me nauseated just thinking about it. In fact there's no way I'd live anywhere where such a creature exists. :bleh:

    My Florida spiders ain't quite as big, but my .22 revolver now has six to it's credit. .22 Colibri does virtually no damage to the walls and ceiling. Hiting them 'on the run' gets challenging though, if you miss the first shot.

    I hate big spiders. :eek:

    I'm fairly close to Asheville, NC but I'm in SC. The Brown Recluse does exist here but they are extremely rare. I've heard of only a handful of bites, ever.
