I'm so glad you didn't post a photo as I really can't abide spiders of any size.

ive heard alot about some spiders being able to survive in our climat now which can be a bit nasty, luckerly for me they are down south but with ever changing climate they are sure to come up north eventually :o(

Thanks Sandra, you just send them down South to me, the one who dislikes spiders . . . : o )

How big is this Spider Stroll? Perhaps you disturbed it, it may have
been nesting in the wood! Sure is scary to hear that our Spiders bite
i have seen loads of weird looking ones that i have come across when
i am Gardening, but never have been bitten yet. I am scared of them
but i would never harm them. Sorry, to hear about your bite hope it
is better now, and you are feeling well.

They sound horrid. I haven't come across them and hope I don't either. Do mice bring them I wonder. I have a cat so there are no mice here.

I have just seen this Spider on Google. They have options of showing the
Spider eating the Mouse i could not watch it, cannot abide seeing any
insect or creature being killed. I suppose this Spider has to catch Mice and
kill them to survive.

UGH!!! I'd run for it, too. Henry eats spiders, but if they bit him, he'd think twice, wouldn't he!

oooh cant stand spiders and even more..woodlice..they make me cringe..

you were very unlucky stroll as they are native to australia. They grow to about 2cm long and usually live in soil burrows. Or were you in Oz at the time?

That's the problem with many imports they carry unwanted visitors.

I have always maintained that spiders can bite, but no-one would believe me!! Now will you take notice? They leave two puncture wounds, like two pinpricks. I first noticed it over thirty years ago when we lived in Germany. The bites a very irritable as well.

and people have different sensitivies too. like me and wasps : anaphlactic response.
when I googled them the first 6 sites were about the australian genus, not surprising we got the heebie geebies.
There is a group of British ones but they are smaller 10 -12mm. and although they can puncture human skin and some people do have an adverse reaction,the majority of people dont notice.
So whilst all spiders bite their prey not many can bite through our skin.

The spiders in Germany are huge I was there with my first husband in army accommodation we used to get lots of them in the summer.

Yes Mavis, I was there too. My husband used to laugh when I said I could hear them climbing the wall....but I could....honestly........now don't all laugh at once, the noise is just too much!!! LOL
