House spiders.

Is it me or are these spiders getting bigger, I Kidd you not I noticed my sock moving on the carpet, when I lifted it up there was this big fookin spider and I mean fookin big being a good nature lover I quickly picked it up with both hands and threw it outside.
Now at this time of year they are common but WOW!! MUCH BIGGER.

I know what you mean. I filmed this one in my garage the other day; it was frackin enormous. Sorry about the poor quality of the footage, I was terrified beyond the point of rational thought at the time.

They only come into our house in October .. was remarking that we havent had many this year to the wife earlier tonight ... the 'big guys' in our house can get out from under my size 13 slipper after I layed it there to keep them quiet whilst I'm watching telly but TBH if they dont 'rumble' up the tube of the hoover .. its not worth catching 'em

The funny bit is my missus was terrified of them since I met her 25 odd years ago .. and this house we have now is the worst Ive ever had for them but she got cured from a hypnotist

she can crush em or flush em with the best of us now, although I prefer the less destructive route myself less mess

But if you kill 100 flies you'll starve one spider

Its not the spiders that scare me in our household, ......its the "spiders legs" that make me cringe :-)

I loathe flys, spiders eat flys. Spiders are great, the bigger the better. :-)
