This made me chuckle, I have a fear of spiders but believe it is a learned response, if someone in the family is frightened and reacts badly to them children tend to pick up on it.
My mother taught us, though she herself is frightened of most creepy crawlies, to catch them rather than hurt them as all life is precious and in her words they never asked to be a spider so whenever I see a spider I get a cup and piece of card and release them into the nearest bushes.

I'd say the solution to Oz's giant spider problem would be to outfit every resident with a flamethrower & declare war on the bastards, but Mother Nature's own brush fire endeavors apparently don't so much as budge the arachnid population :/
Australia -- Critter Hell on Earth, bad B movie style.
