They are on the Isle of Wight as well
A few weeks ago, during the warm weather I had cause to go into the garden with a torch at night.
I HATE spiders, and was terrified to find LOADS of these hanging from ever corner of the shed and along the rear wall of our house. From the shape and markings they were definietly the False Widows.
I spent the next 20 minutes spraying them and just about EVERYTHING in the garden with Nippon. Good stuff for anyone who hates spiders, the spiders really don't like it
Luckily for my sanity, I haven't seen any more since then.
