What would you do if you found dozens of spiders in your mailbox? (Natasha Joyce/YouTube via Storyful)

The only thing that might be more scary than receiving bills in a mailbox is a bunch of spiders.

Australian woman Natasha Joyce shared a video showing dozens of newly hatched huntsman spiders on her YouTube page.

Joyce found the egg sac in October and waited in anticipation for the sac to hatch. She named the mother spider "Hortense the Huntsman Protector of the Post," and also had colorful paper furniture placed in the mailbox.

She wrote on YouTube, "The coloured cardboard at the bottom of the letterbox is the 'nursery furniture' installed by my friend's kids, in readiness for the tiny arrivals."
