Thousands of Venomous Spiders Force Family from Home - ABC News

Homeowners in an upscale suburb of St. Louis have a serious spider infestation. The couple recently won their lawsuit against the previous owners of the home who failed to disclose the infestation prior to the sale. KU biology professor Jamel Sandidge, one of the nation's leading brown recluse researchers, was called on to provide his expertise during the trial. Sandidge estimated the house was infested with between 4,500 and 6,000 brown recluse spiders. Exterminators have taken over the house this week in an effort to rid the home of its unwanted guests.
