A seasoned spider handler told the Daily Mail that a flea collar would help solve something like this from happening again.
‘I had that problem on a regular basis. The fix is pretty easy. Buy a cat or dog flea collar and cut it half and hang it in your meter box.’
‘Spiders and other insects hate the smell or the chemicals in the pet flea collars. I also have them in my gate box and phone that got ants and other infestations. I have been infestation free for a long time now.’
The image has gone viral online, with many vowing to never visit Australia after the horrifying photo was posted online.
