Spider in woody tank!

Beardie name(s)
Hey all, I was cleaning the woodys tub today and noticed a spider web, didn’t think much of it as I thought it may of just been a small spider which isn’t a big deal. But once I’m finished I noticed quite a big very dark black spider, I was going to try and kill it, but it disappeared under the egg cartons in the tub. It was at a size where it could eat the woodys. I don’t know if it poisones I didn’t get a very good look, I’m thinking it may be a black house spider which are poisonous (I’m in Australia) I just don’t know. I don’t know if it would still be safe to feed the Woodys to my beardy, I’ve got a very big colony of woodys and it’s the only thing that I have been feeding her and the only thing that I have to feed her. I might be over reacting but I just don’t want to hurt Smaug??

Don't feed any that are dead or struggling to move, otherwise kill or relocate the spider 🕷 and you should be ok.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
