Just have a quick question for you all. Among the numerous spiders which happily co-exist in and around my Nep collection there is, I have just discovered today, a funnel web. I am happy for the rest of the spiders to live inside my Neps, as they are harmless and have a good life with lots of food supplied, presumably, by the insect attracting nectar of the plants. A funnel web is a little different.
It was actually a friend who noticed it hidden amongst my plants and he tried to lure it out with a long stick in order to get rid of it, but its bloody fast and bloody angry, so we decided that we'd leave it there for a bit until we can think of a better way to get rid of it.
Anyway, this is a very long winded way of asking, is there a spider bait or poison you know of which wont kill the Nep? I am hesitant to spray the spider or really to do anything chemical to it unless I can be pretty sure it wont kill the plants, but don't really want to find myself being bitten one day either! Any ideas? Sorry, I probably sound like a whimp, but man, you should have seen how fast it ran up the stick! Fangs going and everything. It's strange, we don't often get them here, usually its redbacks, which are much easier to deal with.
Anyway, thanks in advance!
All the best
