A man who turned to social media for advice on how to rid his garden shed of a swarm of bugs has split opinions on how to get rid of them.
In a post shared on the Aussie Off Roaders Facebook page, Finch Hatton said his shed was crawling with critters and shared a video of the creepy crawlies amassing on a pram in the backyard area.
‘Apparently it’s normal for this time of year up here,’ his post read. ‘Can’t remember them this bad last year.’

‘OMFG… flame thrower,’ said one person, while another suggested: ‘Call in a tactical airstrike, I HATE bugs’.
