Australians are going, "So."

These spiders also like to hang out in outdoor laundry rooms. That's where I was when I was bitten on my ankle.
The worst thing I ever had to help remove from an ear was a styrofoam bead. Not nasty but almost impossible to remove. There was one in each ear, it was an adult male, and alcohol was involved.

Now we'll have some bleeding hearts running TV ads wanting $19 every month to support poor homeless spiders.

I'm guessing she was lucky and it didn't bite her, or else the article would have said so. It wouldn't have been much fun to get a recluse bite in the ear canal. The one that nailed me did it on my shoulder, and that was bad enough.

Hiding in an ear, hence the name "Recluse".
