A family on Bristol, UK, have been forced to temporarily leave their home after an invasion of the venomous hobo spiders.
Father-of-three Liam Forrester has been biten and has a nasty infection in his arm as a result. He has been advised to leave the house this weekend and get professional extermination experts in to sort the problem out.
The myth of people being afraid of spiders has most certainly come true for this family as their house has become overrun with hobo spiders.
