I've had a redback jump out of my son's shoe when I was banging it out and also another one in the metal grill over the storm drain just as I was picking it up to clean out the drain, I now wear gloves! arrghhh Huntsmen, they are huge and furry!I had one on the inside of the tailgate of the car, which I noticed when I lifted up the boot!God knows what would have happened if that had crawled over my lap while I was driving!!After I flicked it off and it went 'thump' onto the ground, one of those big black crow type birds came down and ate it!I'm just glad they are harmless!!

I am now on antibiotics, nursing an infected swollen upper leg (no.at least.however the mental scars remain.
Has anyone been hypnotised before? Does it work?
Im realy a wuss when it comes to them that even reading about your tales gives me shivers down my spine.The memory still makes me shiver, though these days I wouldn't dream of killing them, I trap them under a glass and wait for my poor husband to 're-home' them in the garden.

J.however the mental scars remain.Had no idea they crept into clothes so will frantically shake out clothing from now on as well as bang out the shoes.

I think I'll be having a few dreams tonight.Yes, just so everyone knows it does happen.still half asleep, i looked up there it was crawling accross the bedthank God the spiders in nz are tiny.

my first encounter with a huntsmen in sydney was just after i had woken up.
my first encounter with a Huntsman was just after we moved to Adelaide. You will be pleased to know the 'area' is healing. You will be pleased to know the 'area' is healing.

But if someone could pleeeeeeeeeease get rid of all the Huntsmen spiders I would be a happy girl - they seem to be getting bigger every year.

The mother of all white-tail spiders decided to use my cycle shorts for an overnight stay this weekend, and after putting them on and taking off on my usual 7am Sunday morning ride the rather unpleasant and predictable happened.This is going to be the biggest test for me when I come over.not the worst case scenario) and feeling as crook as a dog.

Also, for informational puposes, the pain of the bite was about 4 times as bad as a wasp sting.good luck with ur recovery JWW - it'll be a long process, but one day u'll be able to go cycling again. I was rushing around getting ready to go out, decided to wear a top that I'd washed and hung out on the line to dry the day before.it fricken hurts.
how big are these spiders, and are there many in new zealand?

what is the worst spider in NZ?
In Adelaide white tip spiders are anything from half a centimtre to about 3 centimetres long - been here 12 years and never been bitten by one. i was considering hypnotheripy.
Scary!We have killed about 5 white tails in the last 4 weeks, all in the house. It's not as long winded as it sounds)

That was useful reading but what is the most common out of that list?

I hate spiders! as u can tell lol
Spiders is about the only thing im not looking forward to when i move to oz.
aaaaaaaaaaaaghhhh the infamous white tip spider - they get everywhere!
Look on the bright side
It could have biten you somewhere else if you know what I mean!

Like the joke goes Doctor can you take away the pain but keep the swelling

hi jkpake,
have a chuckle at this site!

the full link to the correct page didn't seem to work, go to the above site and select 'Our resouces' then 'Collections' and finally 'entomology'.

I am, however, glad I am in New Zealand.jockney
Thanks for your genuine concern guys.

Its obvious from there just select the ' have a look at our spiders' page.Felt 'something' running down my arm, and was horrified to see a huuuuge Huntsman come out of the sleeve and sit on the back of my hand.Had no idea they crept into clothes so will frantically shake out clothing from now on as well as bang out the shoes.
