    Why hoover it up? It's a living creature. We need to be a bit more tolerant of these creatures. Says me the extreme arachnophobe. I can't wait for the day someone starts to hoover up the human race.:box: Full of our own self importance we are!

    She's talking about the web, not the spider.


    I would hoover a web, though I tend to use a tickling stick - let them know they are not welcome to shack up home in my house.

    :D But they've taken time to design you a lovely web.

    Yes, its just the webs I vacuum up using the extension on the hoover :D
    I would put the webs outside with the spiders if they didn't brake and thats the amazing thing .... I had a spiders web on the side mirror of my car, drove 100 miles down the motorway and it stayed intact. Clever little spiders.


    Thanks @Mel O’Drama :lmao:

    The problem is I don't own a glass big enough. And in general I find these spiders to be confrontational and disagreeable, more so than the common house spider that just scurries back under the skirting board if it should be seen. These f**kers come out bold as brass taunting me. They want me to leave, they want my house.

    No... I think we need to look into genetically altering the size of adult spiders, as they are obviously becoming too big. Their size is increasing and yet the flies remain the same size. It's freak genetic mutation and if we let this go on they will soon be our size and since spiders lay between 2 and 1000 eggs it is only a matter of time before we find ourselves entangled in a messy, sticky, silky web awaiting death while the spider master race live comfortably in our homes licking the flesh from our bones.

    Spiders are beautiful, living creatures who have every right to go wherever they wish. Unless they find their way into my larder in which case I guess it's okay to stamp on the little bastards.

    I believe many generations of house insects are born and raised inside houses, never been outside. It's become their natural environment.
    They won't survive outside the house. Murderer!

    Having said that, I think mainland Europe should ban all import from the UK, just in case any of these monstrous creatures decide to hop on board.
    And if I order something from amazon uk they can ship it from their german warehouse.

    Be brave, my English friends!

    We used to get them regularly but every three weeks, I spray the entry points with the No More Spiders spray. This contains Peppermint Oil and keeps them away without harming them. Although I accidentally discovered that a direct hit squirt bumps them off, while leaving a nice minty odour. Raid crawling insect spray is effective, even though they aren’t insects. My favourite method of disposal is the vacuum hose. The webs are pretty, though. Some of the more ruthless family members use white vinegar sprays on them.

    Kill their family.

    They spin webs on my bin pen and outdoor bin handles every week. Dastards.

    I hear them sometimes. Before I see them. They are that big.

    Because it is less messy than squelching them and leaving a stain.

    Those sound like the big ones that shoot out from under the sofas and just sit there, trying to intimidate you. Or the ones that just appear in the room corner directly above the TV set. Or the ones that appear on the wall behind you and drop down beside you.

    I think they are known as Gangland Spiders. There's a whole web of it. It goes further than most people realise.

    I see. We used to have that sort of trouble with ants.

    When I read spider season, I thought it meant cooking recipes.

    This brings a different meaning to "spider season".
