Redbacks and Huntsmans

We’ve had 2 spider incidents over the last few weeks. Firstly, we had a Huntsman spider on our garden gate, these guys are big but pretty harmless. It would be uncomfortable if they bit you but they aren’t poisonous, this is the fella here…..

Then today we found we had a Redback in a storage area in our back garden. Kirstin and Mhairi took great delight in blasting it with the insect spray. The Redbacks are particularly dangerous if you get a bite from one and very common too.
