A Sydney mum has made a terrifying find in her daughter’s bedroom with some people calling to “burn the house down”.
A woman, who claims to be a friend of the mum, posted photos of the discovery on Twitter.
Pictures show two corners of a window frame covered with hundreds of baby huntsman spiders.
The woman also shared a video from the mum.
In the video, the mum says her daughter told her “there’s a bunch of spiders” in her room.
But the mum played it down.
“There’s maybe 50, 60,” she says.
“But then she says ‘look at the other corner. There’s more’.
“We’re never ever going to have mozzies again.”
So, for everyone saying it's Photoshopped, here is her actual video. pic.twitter.com/2Zcro0nra7

The hundreds of spiders horrified viewers on Twitter with people hoping it was fake.
“Bloody hell. Australia is a horrifying place at times,” one woman tweeted.
Another woman called it “the stuff of nightmares”.
Another woman suggested the only solution to the problem is “a flamethrower”.
“Did they burn the house down? Inquiring minds want to know,” another tweeted.
While they might not be the most inviting house guests, huntsmans aren’t deadly to humans according to the Australian Museum.
A bite might hurt though.
Huntsmans mostly feed on small insects and their predators consist of birds and geckos.
