Dear Mother Nature,

This was uncalled for.

Okay so nobody knows what kind of spiders they are, whether they are poisonous, etc.

I'd rather get eaten alive from the toes up than spider-swarmed to death

I have a hard time believing this story isn't daily mail bull shiat. Heavy on speculation, with no facts, quotes and no other news stories reporting it.

I tend to let spiders be. They are helpful with the local mosquito and fly population. However, if one of those bastards came flying out of the shadows to attack me I would have no problem stomping the goo out of the evil little shiats.

I hope it is real in that we can learn something new, but I hope it's the usual fail piece so we don't have to worry about new arachnid overlords.

Spiders. I hate them, but only about half as much as yellowjacket wasps. At least spiders are (usually) confined to surfaces.

If spiders ever gain the ability to fly, pray for us all!

Heard on science Friday awhile ago 90% of house spiders are good cause they keep the poisonous ones population in check-tarantulas here don't bite are non-venomous-thought all tarantulas were

All spiders are venomous, it's just whether humans are sensitive to their poison. Tarantulas in the US are mostly not poisonous to humans unless you're unusually allergic.

FTA:
"A scientist, who is one of those now camping in the area in an attempt to tackle the dangerous spiders, described the creatures in question as 'highly aggressive'."

WHY WOULD YOU CAMP THERE?!?!?!

Some people seeing a few more spiders around than usual + local shamen killing people through bullshiat "cures" = spider invasion

Thanks Daily Fail.

It's totally more likely that those people died of spider bites rather than being cut by witch doctors using dirty, unsanitary blades.

They say they don't know what kind of spider it is, and that it might be a new species. So, in an attempt to spice up the page, they throw on a picture of a new species of spider they had lying around.

It could still easily be a BS story, Daily Fail and all, but I don't think that's good evidence.

Does ballooning count?

Many sailors have reported spiders being caught in their ship's sails, over 1600 km[11] from land (Heimer 1988). They have even been detected in atmospheric data balloons collecting air samples at slightly less than 5 km (16000 ft) above sea level.[12] Apparently it is the most common way for spiders to invade isolated islands and mountaintops.[11][13] Spiderlings are known to survive without food travelling in air currents of jet streams for 25 days or longer.[4]

You/they wrongly assume that I want to release them. I only want to release their guts all over the underside of my shoe...if they are lucky. If i'm feeling especially rambunctious (sp?) I'll release a half a can of WD40 on them, then release a small flame to send them back to the hell from which they came in a proper fashion.

Spent primary school in Katoomba, Blue Mountains (Aus). There were funnel web nests all through our yard.

We'd drop a bit of high octane model aeroplane fuel down the silk lined holes and light up the entrance. It would only burn for a second but it would flush out the spider, and they'd be pissed. When we weren't being smart arses and trying to flick them on each other with our sticks we'd squish em.

The day we knocked down an old brick fence we counted 13 of them, so they are quite happy to live away from their signature web funnels.

Well the first picture is of Haplopelma Lividium, which is a well known pissy spider that likes to jump at everything. But I doubt it has killed anyone.

Heh. You sound like my gf. I go out of my way to catch any spiders or wasps in the house and then safely transport them outdoors. She's always yelling at me to "just kill it!"

I think she's coming around though.

Are tarantulas even spiders? I know they're arachnids, but I thought I remember reading once that they belong to a separate family.

Found this -

Original(?) Artcle from MAY 22 by an Indian paper.

"He said in both cases, doctors who attended the victims have confirmed they found no symptoms of
death being caused by spider bite.

Damn, I guess that means we have to give it half of our assets and support it indefinately in the manner it has become accustomed to.

Harsh spider...
