Attracting more and more of the dangerous spiders, which are typically found in outdoor furniture and around the home.
Black, long limbed with a bulbous body and a red/orange stripe spot on the upper and lower abdomen. Redback spiders pack a mighty venomous punch, causing agonising pain, vomitting, sweating, muscle weakness and nausea. Yikes!
