SCARY spiders from Down Under with a painful bite that can KILL are being found all over Britain.

The Australian redback, a relative of the Black Widow, is one of the deadliest in Oz. Experts warn it is part of a wave of foreign creepy-crawlies invading us — including the German Cockroach and Pharaoh Ant. They arrive in imports and travellers' luggage.
Redbacks were found all over the country, including a dozen at a factory in Preston, Lancs. Pea-sized with a red stripe, their bite causes pain, swelling, nausea, chest pain, fever — and responsible for 14 deaths in Oz.
Others in a pest control poll were: GERMAN COCKROACHES: Over-running world. Stink. Hard to kill.
PHARAOH ANTS: From Africa. Love hospitals. Feed on wounds.
STINK ANTS: From Africa. Smell of rotten coconuts. 100,000 in group.
CRAZY ANTS: From Oz. Named because they zig-zag. Painful bite.
Richard Mosley, of the British Pest Control Association, said: "These insects are on the move."
