We do not provide extermination advice, and we empathize with your situation. That said, we have no idea about the identity of the “spidery” thing you submitted. You submitted three identical images of this thing. Do you have any additional images? How large is it? Your image is lacking in critical detail, but the eight legs give it the resemblance of a Spider or Tick, but it is unlike anything that comes immediately to mind. Perhaps one of our readers will be able to assist with this challenging identification.
Update: Diana posted a comment indicating she believes this looks like a Whip Spider, Argyrodes colubrinus, but the image on Dave’s Garden and the image on Project Noah of that Australian species do not look like the same species to us, so we still consider this unidentified.
Update: July 18, 2019
We received several comments that this looks like an Ogre-Faced Spider in the genus Deinopis within the family Deinopidae. Here is a BugGuide image that supports that identification.
