(Scroll down for video) A woman had no choice but to escape from her home after noticing deadly spiders crawling on fresh bananas, which bought at an Asda in the United Kingdom.

30-year-old Gemma Price of County Durham, said that she and her 7-month-old son were forced to flee from the home after police told her that the spiders are extremely dangerous.

Pest control workers who visited the woman’s home, said that the insects were possibly Brazilian wandering spiders. Experts say that these spiders are aggressive and venomous.

Geoff Grewcock of the Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary, said that one bite is enough to kill a person within an hour.

Price said that she bought the bunch of bananas from Asda, early in the afternoon. When she came home, she put her son Leo to sleep and went to take a banana.

She sat down on her bed next to her sleeping child and peeled the banana. She then was horrified to see hundreds of spider all over her bed and Leo’s crib.

Price quickly got the spiders off of her body and made sure that the insect did not crawl on her son. She called the police, who told her to leave her house immediately.

Price ran to her mother’s house across the street. Price called the Asda store manager, who told her to bring the spiders and bananas back to the store for a refund.

After Price began yelling that she cannot touch the deadly spiders, she was offered a 50 pound ($65) voucher.

A spokesperson for Asda called the incident extremely rare, and has sent a special team of pest control to Price’s house to make the place was safe for her and her baby.
