Spider invasion!

I know the press report that we're in for unusually high numbers of spiders this autumn across the UK but they're wrong. They're ALL in my house!! Some the size of small hatchbacks and I swear one of them was whistling. I REALLY don't do spiders (which is a pity because they speak very highly of me).

They're certainly not all in your house. I have a round up every night before bed and the other night collected 17!
Most nights it's only been maybe 6 - 10.
I don't think they're coming in from outside, and I'm sure they're too big to be newly hatched, but I can't sleep while I know they're sitting quietly on the ceiling waiting to creepily crawl all over me while I sleep.

Nights are getting a bit cool so spiders (and mice) are moving indoors to keep warm. Spiders are our friends! They eat all the other nasty insects. That is how they get so big. If they weren't there, worry about what else would be. If you look carefully you will see there are lots of different types, with different specialties. None of them live on, or is a threat to, humans.

spiders don't hide In tidy places, that's why you find them in dusty old sheds etc. De-clutter and clean regularly, hey presto... less spiders.

We have only had one whopper inside - but hundreds spinning webs in the garden. It's all rather lovely and a sure sign of Autumn

There's currently a monster the size of a dinner plate playing a banjo and singing Old Man River in our bath.
