"My killer spider nightmare problems gets worse. Our garden is fully infested with Redback spiders, these spiders are close cousins to Black Widow spiders.

On Halloween this year I was not hunting down scary clowns, I was after lots of Redback Spiders. I made a special tool to help capture the spiders that are living in the garden. It proved to be very effective. To totally clear the area Mr Flamethrower is used, nothing survives the flamethrower. This is the second major spider infestation area in our backyard, The first was around the childrens Tonka toys. Little did I know there are many more to be cleared.

The captured Redback Spiders are added to my killer spider home so all these female spiders will get to know each other really well. The one male Redback spider now has a huge number of females to please. If he doesn't he will just become their next meal."

Millions of baby spiders appeared to rain down from the sky earlier this month in the Southern Tablelands in Australia. One resident described the effect it had on their home as such: "The whole place was covered in these little black spiderlings and when I looked up at the sun it was like this tunnel of webs going up for a couple of hundred metres into the sky."

Read that again and try not to let your mind implode from the Lovecraftian horror from it all.

The phenomenon is (terrifyingly) not that uncommon. Apparently the spiders "balloon" by throwing out sheets of webbing and use the winds to carry themselves around. When weather conditions are poor, none of the spiders go anywhere of course. But when the weather picks up again, they all leave in one terrifying hell-swarm.

Again, a salute to the brave (insane?) people who continue to call the continent of Australia their home.

He should change his license plate to just say NOPE.

This massive spider could not have found a more inconvenient place to hang out, aside from on your face.

“Nothing worse than opening your car door and feeling something furry!” writes the uploader in the caption.

They found him just chilling beneath the handle, presumably when they stuck their hand up there to open it.

“It’s a bloody super spider,” he says. “Oh jesus!”

Fortunately, for everyone involved, it eventually plops down and scurries away.
