    We leave spider and flys to the cat who chases them and then squashes them. However one spider we think she gave it a heart attack as spider took one look at the cat and died....

    I'm cheering for the spiders - I never kill them and share my house happily with them. I HATE flies, wasps etc so I am very grateful to the spiders

    It's Australia, you only start worrying about the house spiders when they get big enough to bring down house pets

    While I believe that is a house spider over there, I don't for one second believe that is your hand
    Unless that spider was carrying some buckfast you would NOT be shaking hands with it, I know that for a fact!!!
