Took the papers out of the post box today and then saw something scurrying around inside....I'm still feeling sick now.

Oh if only ellisa,

We don't have letterboxes on front doors here....they are usually situated at the top of your drive either on a post (american style) or built into one of the two brick posts at the driveway entrance.

GET OUT OF YOUR HOUSE NOW :lol:

If I knew there was one roaming around I'd be out of my mind with worry!!!

The one is the photo is only a baby, I guess 3" from toe to toe - my friend didn't help by saying if that's a baby then where is mum and dad :eek2:

Tell that to the indifferent aussie living upstairs. The missing huntsman fell off the ledge of her door the other night as she was opening it and it ran into her room. She was too tired to be bothered looking for it so she slept on top of her covers because she claimed that was safer than sleeping under the covers??? I DONT GET THE LOGIC!!!

Ew. Ew. Ew. Yuck! I hate spiders. I don't know what I was thinking moving here! :) I refuse to sleep with the bedroom window open because there's a tree the rubs it and I wake up petrified something's gone and crawled in and is going to get me! I'm forever checking the bed before I'll get into it. I'm glad I'm in the city so the odds of actually FINDING one there are a bit slimmer. I've only come across 2 tiny thin light brown ones (they were immediately squashed and flushed). Yuck!

Hi,


Here in the UK we have this invisible barrier gel to keep slugs away from plant pots (not quite as scary!! :D)
Don't you have something similar you can put there around you mail box?

If not...You can always get some "special heavy duty gloves to check the mail box"!!!!:D

Cheers,
Busyte

Flame thrower and bazooka come to mind :lol:

Yep, we can get sprays that deter them from invading nooks and crannies etc....guess what I bought from Bunnings yesterday :D .. I'm also guessing that we're going to have to get the house resprayed too.
