We're Both Trapped

A horrified homeowner has discovered that her backyard is infested with hundreds of trapdoor spiders. Now people are being urged to check their properties and keep small pets indoors if they discover the telltale burrows. Janelle, who did not want her surname published, said when she noticed hundreds of holes in her backyard in ­Pakenham about three weeks ago, she thought they ­belonged to beetles. But when she unearthed a huge trapdoor spider while digging in the garden, she was “just a little bit terrified”.
