They infact quite like water, and a common cause for bites is to attempt to remove them from a pool in which they have inadvertently fallen into.

Where I live, the only spiders are wolf spiders, which are mostly harmless, daddy longlegs, which are likewise, and brown recluse spiders and black widows, which will fuck you up. As such, all spiders take close examination, and the black ones or weird looking brown ones get mashed into spider paste.

I was sitting in the car last night, reading by streetlight. And then a huntsman shadow ran across my page. Luckily it turned out not to have been on the inside of the windscreen. I got out the other side, and by then it had run diagonally across to the rear on that side. Didn't want to hit it with my new book, and couldn't kick it with the parking meter in the way. By the time I'd got around the meter, the damn thing had crawled under the car. So then I went and waited for sheol in the foyer. And then had a paranoid ride home :P

Which reminds me, I totally have to spray the car...

heh. My cousin once got into her car to drive somewhere before looking in the rear view mirror and seeing a giant huntsman spider on the back ledge of it (she had a '95 mitsubishi lancer). She completely freaked out and had to get my uncle to kill it for her.

Where I used to work I'd get huntsmen crawling onto my car every few months. Not common enough to get you used to it, but common enough to be freaking annoying.

You'd start driving off and then there'd be this spider darting up the windscreen, and you don't want to put on the wipers since it's summer and you've got your window down. So you start winding that up while you're trying to speed up, but it doesn't even matter if you hit 100kph, he'll hang on like the dickens.
And you just know that when you slow down he'll start moving again and he'll go right to the roof and sit in the door sill and you never see him again till it's time to get out of the car and you open the door and jump out as quick as you can. :evil:

Daddy long legs are great - they eat other spiders. I mean, probably not huntsmen, but certainly white-tails and redbacks.

Sheol stopped at the lights on his motorcycle once, and a huntsman crawled down onto his visor and back up to the top of his helmet. He kept riding to work, sometimes going as much as 100km/h, and when he got there and took off his helmet, it was still sitting on the top of it. Those fuckers hang on.

I love daddy long-legses because you can watch their entire lives unfold in the corner of your rooms, and watch them do loads of spidery things. I've seen one reel in another spider by it's own web, rolling up the line like an extension cable. I've seen another spider deliberately run into a third spider's web to its certain death in order to avoid tangling with one.

Huntsmen are the worst house spiders I have ever dealt with. They come in to my flat when it is cold outside, like it is right now. What a time to read this thread! Had a small one in my bedroom for four day two weeks ago, and before that a big one, more than hand sized, on the screen door for a week. The small one got thrown out in a glass, the big one was allowed to go its own way, free of interference.

The problem for me isn't that I dislike spiders. I find them endlessly fascinating. It is that they occupy my subconscious continuously. I dream about them regularly, and as I awake, I often full-on hallucinate them on the walls around me, and it can take several cycles of closing my eyes, believing the spider isn't real, and looking again before it stops appearing.And when the hallucination goes away, it actually crawls into the wall, because just not being there would be too easy. So I don't like huntsmen in my home. I worry that seeing them around me might turn the hallucinations/dreams scary, where at the moment they are benign.

Probably, I'm leaving Australia in a few months. Nothing will worry me back in the UK...

I have occasional spider dreams. Well actually, all manner of bug dreams, but it seems to start with spiders. But it's weird, they'll crawl all over me and stuff, but I'm not afraid or freaking out... And they never bite or hurt me.

I have a feeling if I woke up and hallucinated spiders sinking into the walls it'd be a different story, though.

No, actually my guys are totally benign in my dreams. Never been bitten, nor even threatened.

An extremely abridged version of one of the dreams/hallucinations involves me waking up to see a carpet of web across my entire bed, from the bookshelf above to the far edge of the bed, like the wall of a tent. I didn't believe it could be there for a second, but I just couldn't not see it, no matter how many times I tried. So I slid sideways out of the covers to avoid disturbing the web, and walked to the light switch. I turned it on. And there was no web there. But just as I was about to get back into bed, I saw a daddy long legs sitting in a web a foot above where my head was as I slept. I'd have gotten it right in the face if I had sat up, but I hadn't seen it at all. Dumb luck, as they say. But then the little guy decided to go for a run, and managed to cover the entire ceiling of my room, about 100sq ft. without ever touching it. It went everywhere up there, and every inch was covered in web. My entire bedroom was one massive contiguous web. The spider didn't survive my fencing sabre taking an interest in it, and the web was swept up the next day. But that was more than a little disturbing, even though the little guy was harmless.

I've noticed daddy long legs take refuge in the top corner of the ceiling above the shower. There is always one there. I don't disturb them, they're harmless in my opinion and eat other spiders. We do get these creepy fucking spiders though... long legs smallish body and I can't identifiy them they look dangerous though so I just squash them.

Speaking of spiders in cars: Many years ago my mother, grandmother, brother and I were going somewhere and we got in the car and my grandmother pulled down the thing to block the sun from her eyes and a huntsman fell into her lap and she screamed. My brother who had already rolled the window down before this jumped out the window so fast he could have caught up to some tachyons... It was absolutely hilarious. Spiders though, are the creepiest things on Earth.

Well, there were always these spiders on the ceiling of my room. They share webs, so every one that set up shop in my room for months had probably been adding to the thing, until there was no more space, when they started building downwards, over my bed. It was completely invisible, which is the strange thing. usually their webs go dusty and cobwebbed fairly quickly. But then, I can't see the ones that don't... I don't think the dreaming thing is too hard to fathom, considering I slept under the things for a good decade, and stared at them fascinated every chance I got.

In the garage outside my house the roof was entirely covered with a very thick carpet of web from the same guys, but this one had a fully grown adult about every five inches, and the web was dense enough to obscure the ceiling in parts. They just walked around each other all day. The dense parts were nests, and had the biggest spiders carrying egg sacs.

For the record, they couldn't kill you if they could bite you. They can actually bite you, but they don't. I suspect if may be like a snake that doesn't bite when you are holding it, because you're the ground, and biting the ground would be stupid. Their venom is almost completely harmless, apparently it would be like a mosquito bite at worst.

Although, in all fairness, the 'camel spider' is NOT in fact a spider. It's a solifugae or solpugid (hence having 10 legs, not 8 etc.) - they are most closely related to psuedoscorpions, such as whip-tail scorpions and the like. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solifugae

I have 2 specimens of solifugae preserved and bottled on the fridge next to me, but unfortunately I don't have a present means to get a picture of them onto my computer. :(

...

additionally, just to help the phobic forumites have another thing to contemplate, I present to you sea spiders: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_spider. Although, upon further investigation one would note they are entirely harmless (and not kinda harmless, but rather the vast majority cannot bite a human at all - let alone cause damage). Honestly, I mostly wanted to bring them up because I spent a couple years doing research on them for university and I rarely get the opportunity to bring it up in conversation. :wink:

Move forward one step, look up, and zoom in. You can see where the web is held together in places to the left with... something. Can't vouch for the fakeness of the spider itself though. That is Australia we're talking about.

Not sure if this is the best place for sharing spider stories, but hey, good enough for me.

I visited Australia some time ago. Stayed at this one fairly nice hotel, but ended up bitten by... something... during the night. Figured it was bedbugs, but then the bites swelled up and hurt. Asked for the maids to change all my bedding and linens, then left for the day. I came back and found the following message on my bed: (from memory, I wish I kept the note)

Dear Guest,
Changed the sheets and blankets, checked bed for mystery biters. Nothing more than a nest of spiders. All is clean.

Are all Australians this nonchalant about finding a nest of spiders on/in/under their bed??

Well, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that in that situation, the nest of spiders was only comprised of babies. They're less harmless than adults, pretty much by law. An adult, dangerous spider was presumably not found.

On the topic of nests of spiders, I have a story. I used to have an aviary in my backyard, with quail and parrots and such. After the aviary had been vacated, we left the thing there for a while. Couple of months later, I go up to clear it out and take it down. Open the nesting box of the parrots, and nearly drop the damn thing because it was full of huntsmen and hunstmen babies. Apparently they'd just taken up breeding in it for a while, probably because it was nice and dark and moist. The sight was abso-fucking-lutely scary. I put the box down quickly and grabbed a hose and sprayed the fuckers out - the most violent I've ever been towards animals, ever.

It was surprisingly easy for me to fall asleep last night after seeing all those spiders.
Anything I felt was most definitely a deadly spider and its minions, but I was asleep in no time... Odd.

Spiders are fine if they stay away from me and out of my room. -.-
But if they're hiding...

I would be really scared to find that sitting next to me.

I'm glad I don't live near one of those giant things, I'd probably be scared to death of them. But now hopefully I can convince people not to freak out when they see tiny insects near them. That annoys me to no end.
