Any Big Spiders Yet?

Ask a Question

Itโ€™s that time of year when the spiders come visiting. Has anyone had any big ones yet? If so do you like them or hate them?

They are incredibly brave creatures. Going toe to toe with giant wasps. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I find spiders quite friendly at least they don't chase me around the garden until I scream like a little girl. Bleedin Habanero sky raisins.

I'm not a fan at all, although I would never kill one.

I once had one in the house that was so large we heard it walking before we saw it ๐Ÿ˜ถ ๐Ÿ•ท๏ธ

My husband was cutting back one of our climbing clematis and he saw a huge spider! He said the body size was at least 5p. I took some convincing that it is an outdoor spider and will keep the windows closed for a while.

Last week I froze for at least 5 minutes in front of the biggest spider I've ever seen. I managed to stick a pint glass over it (it just about fit) for my husband to get rid of it when he woke up. Even he was freaked out! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Yes ๐Ÿ˜ณ two that ran across the living room floor during the evening and I thank my lucky stars that I have good eyesight and that I have a speedy husband who always removes them! He said he found a huge one in the hallway too the other day ๐Ÿ˜ซ I hate spider season - I could never be single ๐Ÿคฃ

I donโ€™t mind spiders but everyone else in the house does, so I am the nominated spider catcher! I always try to re home them outdoors rather than killing them though.

I once found a huge spider in a bunch of grapes, and as I moved the grapes, a sac burst and all these baby spiders came swarming out ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I managed to get the package in to a large mixing bowl and cover it with clingfilm. I phoned Tesco and they sent environmental health and an arachnid specialist around in about an hour! All very dramatic!

laraquinn my husband would agree with you! He hates spiders. The only thing that worried me was that if the babies escaped and were poisonous. I guarded the bowl until environmental health arrived to relieve me of it!

I'm not a big fan of spiders, but I just let them get on with their business.

I don't mind money spiders though because they're little.

Not yet, touch wood. There again, there's been more movement from my cat at night, so maybe she's eaten some!

There was a huge one on the wall in my living room yesterday, plus another one ran across the floor last night. My dog is terrified of them (and moths, bees, flies, ants...you name it, if itโ€™s an insect or even resembles an insect heโ€™s off ๐Ÿ˜‚) and I donโ€™t like them much either.

I hadn't seen a spider with anything other than eight legs, so did a bit of searching - it looks as if that one has been in some trouble where it has escaped with its life - but not all its legs,

No. Iโ€™ve seen small ones, and lots of webs out in the garden. But no big spiders visiting yet...

There are loads of spider catchers on Amazon which are perfect for capturing those large buggers. Getting the Dyson or the Henry out is a bit of a hassle and I do not have the confidence to go up to a big spider with a glass and paper. As an arachnophobe, a spider catcher is a life saver for me.

Just capture it and put it out the window. Job done. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ‘

I've always been the designated catcher but I'm no longer as willing as I was after seeing all the cases of spiders in fruit and international parcels. I also bought a spider repellent spray for my car wing mirrors - so much better than wiping away those sticky webs.
