    Why? Huntsman spiders are wide spread in NZ and were introduced a long time ago. I find a couple a week dead in my house because the cat likes to play with them. Apparently mice aren't scary enough.
    Because it's part of the Bio-Security act, if you receive shipments from overseas and find any insects or so forth including foreign matter - dirt etc, then you're meant to ring/inform MPI.

    Whilst the huntsman is established here, it doesn't mean we don't have to inform MPI about them being found in shipments from Aussie.

    Sorry I mis-read your post, I thought the last part said "didn't come in via shipment".

    I thought "if it's already here by the bucketload why report it?"
