Creepy crawlies swarm during Queensland floods

A man found himself in a hairy situation in the aftermath of Cyclone Debbie with hundreds of creepy crawlies climbing up his legs.

Spiders, beetles and even a centipede made themselves at home at the man's Queensland property in Jimboomba, south of Brisbane.

In a video posted to Twitter by ‘Trucking Nurse’, numerous different insects swarmed the man, climbing up his legs and around his feet.
