6 chooks here. The eggs are god damn amazing. Do it.
Looks like a wolf spider, their bite can pack a bit of punch.
They never report the stats on drop bear attacks, must be to avoid scaring the tourists.I had a huntsman on my shorts the other day, must of been walking around for 5 mins before I got outside and realised. Scared the piss outta me, I got undressed slowly in the car park. In the end he was super sick and just wanting somewhere to hide. Was I popped him under the stairs, sometimes I wonder if we could of been friends.
But seriously, I don’t think you are going to find much in your back yard that will cause your kids more trouble then a painful bite, unless maybe they find a funnel web.
“Last year, a 22-year-old died in Australia from a suspected bite by a redback spider. It was believed to be the nation's first death from a spider since a fatal funnel-web attack in 1979”
So nearly 40 years with 1 spider death, personally, spider danger is way down on my list. And anyway, they mostly come out at night, mostly........
Had a Pom working for me in a previous job. We had him going for a full two weeks before he got suspicious.They never report the stats on drop bear attacks, must be to avoid scaring the tourists.
Glad you didn't change your name because of that "other" spiderHad a Pom working for me in a previous job. We had him going for a full two weeks before he got suspicious.
As for spiders, I've never heard of an unprovoked attack. I only kill the black ones, and only if they're indoors. The rest I catch and release, and only if they're within reach of the floor. We had four Huntsmen of various ages on our ceiling last spring.
You said daddy long legs, I'm posting this againWe'll get along splendidly if they get the fuck off my property.
Honestly, they aren't allowed inside my house anymore, that is that (exceptions made for daddy long legs and dudes smaller than a 5c piece). The backyard, I can live with that but having a horde of little kids running around a backyard that has a bunch of spiders in it just doesn't sound like the right thing to do, when the spiders don't pay rent or at least pull some weeds.
I just don't think Tumbleweed could have been arsed with international notoriety!Tumbleweed deserved global recognition. As did The Fauves. Still do.
