    Sat typing away 5 minutes ago when felt something crawling on my forehead reached up to swat it and actually caught hold of it. When I looked it was a poor little spider. Put him on desk getting him the right way up he struggled about a bit a little bit squashed thought he was brown bread. Just been in liviing room for a few minutes came back and he has wandered off.

    Good luck to him don't like hurting spiders and refuse to kill them at work despite screams from female staff, they are good luck after all.

    If you wish to live and thrive,
    Let the spider run alive. ​

    Thank you for your compassion, mondobongo, glad to hear there are people who think as you do. I assume it was a tad smaller than this beauty:

    Killing spiders does not give you bad luck.

    No it doesn't. I agree that you end up being plagued with flies but this is nothing whatever to do with luck.

    But then i remember...
    On several occasions i've unwittingly ended the lives of insects :sad:
    At work on two occasions...seen a trapped moth fluttering like a fluttering lost thing :wacko:.
    Spent a couple of minutes chasing and catching the little hapless creatures....tossed them out of an open window to freedom....watched them flutter down to the path be greedily snapped up by a sparrow :sad::blush:;)

    Exactly the same happened at home with a spider :biggrin::blush::sad:

    Think i'd have lerned the first time, wouldntcha :biggrin:

    There are about 36 trillion spiders in the UK, that's about 600,000 spiders for every person in the country and about 150 spiders for every square metre of land.

    The largest spider in the UK is the Fen Raft Spider which at about 5- 6 inches puts the above into it's place, living on fish admittedly small ones like sticklebacks, but still quite impressive.

    It'd be able to hold four rods at once! :sad:
  13. I helped a friend clear their garden in the summer using a works long wheelbase Transit filled to a height of five feet. I left it for a couple of days and then climbed into it to drive it to the tip. The cab was festooned with the webs of hundreds and hundreds of the little beggars, festooned I tell you! They had climbed through the poorly fitting bulkhead and set up home. I dont mind spiders so long as Im nowhere near them.
