Hi fellow poms,
My bloke is terrified of spiders and this is one of the things he frequently throws up in our oz discussions. Whilst I've showed him tons of statistics that show the amount of people actually bitten and the much smaller statistic of fatalities, he's still not convinced. So I wondered if any of you lot actually living in QLD could tell me how frequently you encounter the little critters. His concern is more of finding one in the house rather than actually being attacked by one. If you have come across a huntsman (his least favourite arachnid) or any other of Australia's delightfully leggy creatures could you tell me where it was and if you're living in a house in the suburbs, a flat in the city, a floating houseboat, etc?
