Another story that you all won’t appreciate but it’s good to keep this in mind.
A STAFFORDSHIRE family were forced to flee their home after finding hundreds of potentially deadly spiders in a bunch of bananas.
Father-of-two Jamie Roberts, 31, spotted white patches on the fruit, but assumed it was mould.
But upon closer inspection he realised the fruit was infested with a spider nest.
The baby spiders had exited the nest. The family called pest control and were told to leave the house for it to be fumigated. The witnesses report that the spiders looked like Brazilian Wandering Spiders but because they were small, this is uncertain and no results of ID have been noted. However, this does happen. (I wonder if it happens MORE on organic produce? There is are several good reasons for pesticides, folks.)
While it seems extreme to leave the house and fumigate, it was necessary so that the spiders would not find a place to hide and pose a future problem. Please check ALL your produce carefully before removing it from the store.
