Fun fact, no one has died from a bite since the antidote was developed in the late 70's. But still, no one wants to be convulsing in a bed.

Was reading about another antidote developed in the 50s for one of the spiders in the pics I posted, don’t remember which one, though.

Anything with eight legs is the devil's work and should be immediately spray painted white with fly spray!

It's this SOB that worries us because bite first, ask questions later and now you're in an ambulance. Though they are unlikely to be in a letter box because way, way too dry, they like moist.

Would have been the redback. We have plenty of them and they are pretty much a non event. They just hide and you can pick their webs easily enough.

Funnel Web's (the one with the fangs) are a totally different story, those MF's will hunt you down.
