The nightmare of a Melbourne mother has come to life after she found a deadly redback spider lurking in her 19-month-old’s room.
Sara Mousavi made the frightening discovery Tuesday night, with her spotting the creepy crawly in the wall-mounted air conditioning just before putting her baby boy to bed.
In a horrifying turn of events, the venomous spider dropped from the wall and ‘ran down the bed’ before it could be stopped in its tracks.

Fortunately her child was not in the room at the time.
Ms Mousavi described dealing with the intruder as ‘the most frightening thing ever’.
The little terror’s rampage came to an end after being exterminated by Ms Mousavi’s husband, who then threw it in the bin.
The mother posted a plea on social media asking for advice on what to do about the culprit and any of its potential family members.
Alongside several eye-boggling close-up photos, she wrote ‘What is this in my baby room? Followed by a line of crying and worried emojis.

‘What should I do? It’s a rent house. Helppppp plzzzz,’ she begged.
Her panic was eased as social media users reassured her there was nothing more she could do but have the house pest sprayed.
‘You’ve killed it so not much you can do, it’s a red back, they are quite poisonous. being in a rental doesn’t mean anything when it comes to spiders. It’s your responsibility to spray for them if you choose to,’ one wrote.
Ms Mousavi’s rental agent has booked the home in for a pest control treatment.
