Black Widow= Red Backs, and yes...If the hotel is not fumigated or if a redback got in by accident yea. You have to be careful everywhere that could have spiders because one might bite you, when I was a little girl one of my friends died form a red back bite. Its true to live here you have to be careful all the time, but i guess you get so used ot it you dont notice.
sorry to hear about your friend, have you ever seen a red back? or any other dangerous creature?

PS. Anyone got any ideas on how to get rid of this spider?
Leave it. They kill flies, which might actually be carrying infections which could harm you. They are helpful to have in the house.

oh dont get me wrong, its fantastic, you just have to use common sense, unlike some tourists, when there is a sign that says, "No swimming, Crocadile territory" it generally means it. :rolleyes:

My cat used to bring King Browns home as a present for my mother, Taipans, Red Belly Blacks, carpet snakes, green tree snakes, Death Adders, Eastern Browns, Tiger snakes, copper heads, I could go on, but it seems I wouldnt be a good tourism minister...

There are kangaroos and koala's everywhere though... it just depends on what habitat you are in at the time. There are usually tonnes of kangaroos on the golfing greens here. Its adorable.

LOL. i hear the same noise every night around this time, once i thought it was a baby crying or something so i was gonna call the pigs, but i had a look and it was in fact a pack of foxes. the sound is so familiar to me as there are untold foxes round my area. there is actually a gang of foxes that terrorise the streets they walk around tear apart everyones garbage!

Take some books, and build a square around it. Quickly lift the glass, and drop a dictionary on it
when you say drop a dictionary do you mean kill it by doing that coz it seems too fat for it get killed like that

well i just got rid of it now! i basically put 4 open cardboard boxes around the glass the spider was in and then i lifted the glass and bang! the spider went into one of the boxes. got the box closed it and then lol at 4.30am im walking half way down the street with a box in my hand and just dropped it down for him to invade another house. i deserve a round of applause for the great idea, no harm done to the spider at all :cool:
