Spider, Spiders Everywhere

These are my newest Australian friends- they live in my backyard. I constantly walk into their tangled webs and fear for my life that one of them will be the most poisonous spider in the world and get stuck in my hair.
Ugh, I am hoping as the weather gets cooler they will disappear. I don't remember having this prospering spider population last winter when we first arrived in Sydney.

dont worry about the most venomous spider falling on you in a spider web, worry about it creeping out of its trap door while you are sitting in the grass, this is where our most venomous spiders hide! ewwwwwwwww!

Is there anything you look for to know whether or not a spider in venomous??

I brought some washing in off the line the other day and went to fold it up on my bed. As I was turning a sleeve inside out and huntmans fell out onto my hand.

Screamed and flicked the bugger away from me. It then scurried UNDER THE SHEETS. I did not care for that.

I ended up finding it and taking it outside. They eat mosquitos so are handy to have around (as long as they stay outside away from me)

Miss Fi-
That is so scary! I have no idea which spiders are bad and which are not dangerous--
and I have never seen this many spiders EVER!
