*Imagine, a hairy spider approximately the size of your hand, coming out of the bag along with your bananas. A family in South London can tell you first hand, its no laughing matter.
That’s when the deadly insect ripped off its own limb and successfully escaped.
The man had taken a photograph of the spider, and went online to research it. To his amazement the Guinness Book of Records called it the world’s most venomous species.
The store sent in pest control experts – who called the spider “hardcore” as evidenced when they attempted to capture the spider and it became aggressive, standing on its back legs and showing its fangs.
Using a 3ft stick, the insect was moved into a heavy plastic box, which was then sealed inside two other boxes, to be sent for scientific research.
Eggs had also been discovered, and they were placed in a freezer to be killed..
These spiders have caused 14 reported deaths and one pest control expert said there was no anti-venom in the UK.
Experts say these incidents could be due to the trend for organic fruit that is not treated with spider-killing chemicals.
