My Pulse Is Already Irregular And I'm Nauseous...

Louis said 'Huntsman spiders can give a nasty bite so they were lucky they didn't get hurt.'
A bite from one of these spiders won't kill a human, however, it can cause nausea, an irregular pulse rate and can get infected.
...and that's just from the thought of these things getting established over here!

Julia,

You're large, spider is small - you win.

Stamp on it, flatten it with hand, grab it in cupped hand and crush (skin on palm & fingers should be spider bite resistant)

I was bitten by one of these​ things when I put my hand into an empty beer carton. Not really painful; I just felt a little prick.

I think I'd prefer polar bears!

"Stamp on it..."

Can't! Had it drilled into me to 'let a spider run alive'. The cats, however, never heard this... ;)

"Not really painful; I just felt a little prick."

Badoom-tish!
