Yes gave it a serious hammering with my shoe - never seen any around here before but I know others have - bloody nightmare - why do these things always happen when hubby's away :curse: Managed to get a good luck at it and then googled it and it was most definately one - was about 3 inches long

FD, just search the place around just to make sure you don't have any more of them Can't take chances with pets and kids playing in the garden.

OMG I don't even know where to start they could be anywhere This was on the outside of the mesh so hopefully not inside the house - will a pest control visit work or will they need to know where they are??

If it was outside, then just check the garden. Just google and find out what their favourite hiding places are. I think with all the construction, these creatures have been displaced from their habitat. Not sure whether pest control will help.

We found a camel spider right on the toilet seat in Dubai last year. I won't post pictures of it but if you're interested... Google. It's a monster though, i've seen videos of it on youtube fighting 30 ants and eating huge lizards.
