Does anybody know if these fellas are poisonous? Found a massive one in the house yesterday and have got two small kids and heard rumours that they leave a nasty bite...anyone know?

minor poison - not dangerous, just unconfortable. got a bite from one a few years ago, didnt enjoy it(!) but just a sore patch for a few days.

check out youtube - that will scar you for life...but then again they don't know where the bites came from.
Don't think there's too much to be afraid of though - lucky we dont live in aus

You´ll be right, just takes longer to kill them! They´re in every house, they appear now and then. I´ve found about 3 in the past year, if you find more, just fumigate the house. You´ll be sweet as after that for like a year lol

If you find other spiders in the house it's an indication you don't have the white tails as they eat other spiders.
