A lady returned home to a living nightmare after finding a monster huntsman spider sneaking on her roof. Laree Clarke turned to social media to ask for help and was advised by one joker it would be easier to burn down her house. Laree was met by the hairy, eight-legged creature at her home in Townsville, Queensland, Australia.
She said she had tried to remove it using a container but the arachnid was the size of an adult’s hand and too big to fit in one.
She wrote on Facebook: ‘Is there anyone that could remove this from my house?? Now!??? I don’t have a container that big! When I went near it with the phone light it came at me raising it fangs and legs. Hell nahhhh!’ Laree was met with a barrage of responses – not all of which were helpful.
One told her to ‘kill it with fire’ while another suggested she ask the spider to ‘pay rent.’ Several people suggested the fire approach, including one who wrote ‘Probably easier to burn your house down at this point.’
Others people were slightly more helpful and urged her not to turn arsonist on the venomous spider.
