A HORRIFYING video captured the moment “40 baby spiders” were caught crawling around after being born on the ceiling of a young woman’s home.
Rebecca Paul, 21, from Newtongrange, Midlothian, said the spiders hatched on the ceiling in her home on Sunday.
The student posted a clip of the arachnid family to Twitter and said she is “ready to be homeless” after finding them.
She decided to vacuum the creatures up and sprayed the room when a few more appeared.
In the video the tiny spider hatchlings can be seen crawling around, and two huge adults spiders are also visible.
Rebecca can be heard saying “That is actually the fear” as she moves the camera around the room and squeals.
She posted the clip to Twitter yesterday (Sun 25 Aug) writing: “You’ve no had a worse Sunday than me.
“Spider just gave birth on my ceiling. No being dramatic but that’s me officially ready to be homeless.”
Other Twitter users were horrified by the clip.
A user called Reece wrote: “That’s no a f****** spider. That’s an 8 legged beast that you expect to see in a horror film. Fs.”
Megan Watkinds wrote: “omg I’d actually die”
Kris Dawson wrote: “Just burn the house down at that point.”
Ryan Burgess added: “I’m a celebrity get me out of here.”
A user called Miss Crawford posted an image of Actor, Daniel Stern as a villain in Home Alone with a tarantula on his face and joked: “This will be you the night in your bed.”
Speaking today Rebecca said there had not been a happy end to the incident.
She said: “I estimate around 40 baby spiders and two adult spiders were in the room. We removed them by vacuuming them up.
“My mum vacuumed them up as I was too scared and I haven’t emptied the vacuum yet.”
