Huntsman Spider in the House
Occurred on September 23, 2017 / Moruya Heads, New South Wales, Australia
Info from Licensor: "Last Saturday, my wife spotted a big Huntsman spider in our laundry room. The next day, the spider had moved further into the house and my son was having trouble dealing with it. He needed to get to the bathroom and was too scared. I went up to check for her in the laundry room and she was gone. A few days went by and we thought she was truly gone. Then yesterday, my son found it again in his room. My wife and I captured and released the spider in our backyard. We have since found out that Huntsman spiders have a very strong homing character and would more than likely return to our home in the coming days. For my wife and I, to treat something that we are so afraid of with compassion and kindness in front of our kids is a good way to show them and others it's not so hard to do the same. Maybe it is a spider or something else you are really afraid of it's not that hard."
