    i've thought of seeking out a shrink to treat my phobia but i hear all they do is throw you in a box and dump buckets of the stinking things on you to get you over your sensitivities.

    to hell with that.

    I know someone who has a serious and morbid fear of spiders of any kind or size
    - to the point of hysteria. She had 5"x7" photos of nasty looking brutes taped
    onto the insides of cupboards, on her fridge, etc. Her therapist insisted
    that she do this to 'acclimatize' herself by seeing them often.

    Luke - you've shown a type that is everywhere in and around the forests
    and lakes up here during the summer months.........

    I say fight back ! There are some places in the world where spiders (Arachnids)
    are a source of nutrition. With increasing world population, and dwindling
    resources/supplies of food - dare I mention - this is our next step
    to survival on this planet.........

    Hello Gents
    I had a similar experience to AmericanKraut in that I was bitten on the back of the thigh by a redback
    but didn't think it was a spider bite at the time. My Wife & I were getting a house we have in central
    New South Wales ready for a new tenant & as it was a pretty hot 40 odd degrees at the time I was
    chugging back a few cleansing ales that evening. On getting up off the seat in the backyard to grab
    another beer I noticed a strong stinging pain in the back of my thigh that seemed to be getting worse.
    My Wife couldn't see any mark there & I shrugged it off thinking that I had probably been bitten by
    an ant as there were several large ones wandering about at the time. I went back to my reading &
    drinking & eventually went to bed with my thigh still stinging. A few days later I had the large red
    rock-hard bite mark that seemed to alternate between hot & cold. I then had my suspicions that it
    probably wasn't an ant bite & when we went back to the house a week later lo and behold! under
    the webbing of the seat in exactly the spot that I had been sitting was a reasonable sized redback.
    I was lucky the bite was on a fleshy part... & the therapeutic properties of the Tooheys I had been
    drinking might also have had something to do with it.

    Regards
    Brett
