We’ve heard all the chilling reports and seen the blood-curdling photos – the giant sex-crazed spider invasion has begun.
While some accounts of these eight-legged invaders being the size of cats and dinner plates are, perhaps, slightly exaggerated, one woman’s story will fill you with horror.
Make-up and special effects student Lydia was in the process of packing up her room when she spotted something in the farthest corner.
At first she thought it was just a dust cluster.
But then she realised this was no dust cluster. No.
It was a giant mummy spider surrounded by all her babies.
It’s important to point out that Lydia does not live in the Australian outback – but in West Yorkshire.
Lydia later told Unilad , “I was just in my room the other night and was moving some boxes from some shelves I don’t really go near as I’m moving away to uni on Tuesday when I noticed what I thought was clump of dust in the very corner.
“I didn’t have my glasses on at the time so I hadn’t realised what it was.
“Once I did it was like being in a nightmare, obviously I straight away had to get my dad to get rid of them!”
So how did she deal with the fearsome beast?
While this is the sort of discovery that would actually make us move house and never return, Lydia simply enlisted her dad who flushed it down the toilet.
