Fiddlebacks aren’t biggest arachnids in the world, but they can certainly pack punch – as two women found out in Montpellier recently.

The 5mm eight legged midgets hide in clothes and bedding – they will bite you if disturbed.

Unless left untreated, the venom is won’t kill you but you will need the dead cells removed.

Oh, and check your covers before saying: “Night, night. Please don’t let the bed bugs bite.”
