Nice photo, did you take that yourself? Funnily enough, those orb-web spiders don't bother me at all; I can pick them up quite happily regardless of size. I that's because they remind me of the spider crabs I used to catch when I was a fisherman.

Thanks - yes he was very accommodating and lived in the same place all summer. Didn't mind having his picture taken!
Cheers
Neil

So, what you do is this:

Get a nice strip of ribbon in her bathroom scheme colour and a small beach pebble. Hang ribbon into the bath and secure with pebble.

Tell her it "wards off spiders"

Just been watching Dermot Somebody in the jungle looking at snakes and ants when he came across the Brazillian Wandering Spider. Apparently it can jump 20cm in one go and if he bites, you get an uncomfortable priapic experience (I'm sure we've all had one of them ) which can last many hours (nothing unusual there) and ultimately end in impotence if not death. Not sure a pebble on a ribbon is going to help me much if I come across one of them in a box of imported bananas

I watched that too, I think he is called Domenic something lucky it didn't catch the camera man's crown jewels or it could have had double the effect that was stated
