A young Australian woman was shocked after finding a huge spider and dozens of her babies in her bedroom window.
Jessica Allen, 20, found the unwelcome guests at her Sydney home as she went to bed and noticed a dark stain on her wall before realizing the plaster was actually alive.
She posted a video on her TikTok page on Saturday where she zoomed in on the shadow shapes from afar before showing the spiders up close.
Jessica Allen got the shock of her life when a dark shadow on her window turned out to be a huge spider and dozens of babies in her bedroom
Ms. Allen posted a follow-up clip on Sunday after her first video went viral, garnering over 467,000 views and over 1,800 comments.
In the second clip, she told her followers how the spiders were handled, filming her mother using a plastic container and a piece of paper to trap the spiders before releasing them outside.
She said that while the spider was a “good kind of spider” who is “happy to chill on my windowsill and eat bugs and flies,” she prefers they live outside her room.
The video titled ‘Get the vacuum lads’ went viral with over 467,000 views in just two days
“Today is no longer an extermination mission, it’s a relocation mission,” Ms. Allen said in her video.
She noted at the end of her video that while the mother spider was still hiding in the crack of her window frame, most of the baby spiders could be moved.
“Successful mission,” she said.
Titled “Get the vacuum lads,” the first video made toe curls, with some viewers expressing their horror on the spot.
“You get the lighter, I’ll get the deodorant,” one wrote.
“Fire … just all the fire,” said another.
“As soon as I heard ‘in Australia’ I knew it could only go downhill from there,” one commented.
Ms. Allen posted an update on Sunday showing the spiders, saying that although they were the ‘good’ kind of spider, they were not welcome in her room
One simply wrote, “Give me that damn bug spray.”
Others shared their own spider stories, with some writing that they recognized it as a “friendly” spider.
“They’re the good kind of spiders… they eat the bugs and usually leave people alone,” one commented.
“Last week I had them in my corner office all the time. Not the first time,” wrote another.
