Viral Video of Spider Infestation Makes International News

What would you do if you came across hundreds of spiders in your daughter's room? Post video of them and become international news, if you're one Australian mom.

Claudia Domrose of Sydney, Australia discovered hundreds of newly-hatched huntsman spiders on the walls and ceiling of her daughter's room, and posted video of the creepy-crawly nursery online.

She explained to Australia's News9 that not only wasn't she going to kill the spiders, her daughter actually slept in the room that night.


"We just left them there because they are baby huntsman, I actually like huntsman, so I was like, I'm not going to do anything," the makeup artist from Germany said.

"They're just going to walk away… let nature be."

Claudia said her daughter joked she wouldn't sleep in the room again. However, she did sleep in the room, choosing to sleep at the opposite end of her bed.

Well, the story turned out to have legs, as the arachno-colony popped up on newscasts around the world. But perhaps the best reaction came from Kate Langbroek of 10 Sydney, who was clearly mortified by the story, and added that returning home after some time abroad made her realize she never noticed "how spidery Australia is."

I think this went viral not because of hundreds of spiders in a girl's bedroom, but because mom said they were going to "let nature take it's course."

No thanks.  I'll be at the hotel, Mommie Dearest .  Call me when every last freaking spider is dead.  And while you're at it Joan, do something about the cockroach infestation.

On 2 separate occasions over the years, I've called family members to come over and kill spiders.  Don't judge.  They were big-ass spiders.  Of course every family holiday gathering since then has been a treat.  The good news is that I'm a little smarter about providing ammo to loved ones.  Raid Wasp and Hornet killer can make short work out of a spider from 22 feet.

I made the mistake of swatting a wolf spider once. Will never do that again. As soon as I did, a million tiny babies ran all over the place. I was horrified.

Evening ender. They actually do leave by themselves..Geez mass hysterics over harmless huntsmen spiders. If they were funnel webs then that would be something to complain about. Most people ignore them or catch them and put them outside. It is no big drama...

Good on ya mum for not killing them and she is dead right..let nature be...most would be gone by the morning...at least they are harmless...😀

I'm with you, Shona. I don't kill spiders unless I absolutely have to. I like wolf spiders. They're big and they jump. They're fascinating. I like tarantulas, too

I kill spiders on sight unless they have hit quarter size, then I call my wife. If I never see them they are okay, but as soon as either of us come into contact with one another, fuck them.

All it takes is one bite to make a blubbering mess out of its victim.  From experience:  It feels like a burning ember melting through your skin.  I'm not talking about a tiny spark, I'm talking about the entire charcoal briquette.  Am I exaggerating?  NO!  Okay, maybe a little, but when they bite, it really does hurt and the wound takes about a month to heal.  What I really hate is that when you try to gently sweep them outside, they make it pretty clear that their intent is to take the broom out of your hands and beat you with it, so I don't take any chances.

Everything is bigger in Texas.  In fact, I once struggled with one for a half-hour trying to get my broom back.  That was actually the time I called my Uncle Jerry at 11 o'clock at night.  Without a word, he walked right past me, still in his jammies and bathrobe, walked out to the studio, and the only thing I heard was the unmistakable sound of a foot stomp.  I hadn't even closed the front door when he walked past me again, got in his truck and drove away.  He spoke not one word the entire time. 

In my own defense, he did tell me later that it was the biggest spider he had ever seen in person.  At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

It's a good story so I can why you're sticking to it.

Back when had a garage I came home and opened the garage door to find George (cat) cornering a tarantula. Fortunately my broom was right there so I swatted at George so he would leave it alone and I gently nudged the tarantula out the garage door towards the woods. George was not pleased but he would been less pleased if that tarantula had stung him

I gently nudged the tarantula out the garage door towards the woods.

Nudged it with what?  A leaf blower?  A car tire (one that's still on the car)?  A chandelier duster with a 30-foot extendable grip?

A simple push broom I used for sweeping the garage. I felt really bad for that tarantula because George killed everything he played with. Glad I was able to rescue her.

Again, ugly as fuck, no doubt, but just not a spider. we caught one in our bunker, fast as hell and went right at you, we eventually got it with shaving cream. 

It got DESTROYED (and eaten) in the next fight.

Very cool, wouldn't want to sleep in the room but still very cool.

Just guessing but maybe mom is right about them leaving on their own.  Assuming there isn't a lot of prey inside they would have to go outside so as not to starve

That is exactly right... they live outdoors and are usually found in the bush or under bark etc on gumtrees. When they do come inside it can be a sign of heavy rain and they are gone again in no time. So no need to kill or spray them...if they really bother you the old ice cream container and piece of cardboard trick is all that is required...to safely catch them and plonk them back outside...I do it all the time...just have to try and stop the cat from eating them..🙄🙄

Empty it outside if you must save the invader.

I have arachnophobia and freak out about spiders, except for the wolf spider for some reason.  When I was 12, there was a spider in my bedroom and my mother was not home to deal with it.  After an hour I begged my father to come home from work to kill it.  By the time he did get home, that tiny little spider had grown to 200 lbs in my mind and was carrying my bed around on his back.

The ones I don't mind are those little jumping spiders. I had one that hung around my computer screen for a while. I left it alone and it would come out and jump around the monitor.

Haven't seen it in a while. I guess a cleaning gig finally got it or drove it off.

Welp, I would have died of a heart attack. I HATE spiders. Am fucking terrified of them and I have no idea why. They are hideous little bastards, and despite their vital ecological niche I still kinda wish we could wipe them out.

My wife is our resident spider killer.

I once called a fiend of mine and told him to get his ass over to my room, it was a fucking emergency. There was a big ass spider in my sink, which was right by my bathroom and my barracks room door, I was trapped until it was dead.

I had a nightmare one time that a spider was drifting down from our ceiling fan right towards my face, I woke up in an absolute panic flinging our comforter and sheet into the wall. 

I am a complete, 100% pussy when it comes to spiders. I have already told my wife that if her and the girls could be bound and gagged but if there spiders between them and myself, well figure out how to free yourselves. 

Fuck spiders.

My husband has a thing about spiders, too, but he does appreciate the webs that the orb spiders spin. He's gotten some great shots of the one that spins her web on our deck. But what he doesn't appreciate is walking into a web, cause then he starts screaming "Is it on me?!?! Is it one me?!?!"
