    No no no.

    Spiders are good.

    Ah, I love EG's annual spider threads.

    IIRC, seemingly loads of the regs live in ancient houses prone to waves of giant arachnids, leading to all sorts of hilarious japes.

    But they like, scurry everywhere all menacingly. The one on the wall is totally staring at me, I can feel it.

    I just can't deal with spiders. One with a legspan of an inch is enough to send me running the opposite direction. Not sure why really, they've just always been a thing with me.

    Well they always pop up around the summer time, which is what I call spider season when they just take over. Don't see them around winter time usually...I think the heating brought them back early :p

    Edit: So maybe they do take refuge in warm houses during the winter, but i've never seen them until it starts getting warmer. I know they don't reproduce or live outside in the wintertime.

    It's nice to see a huge spider in the bathtub when I take the morning shit.

    Oh, stupid spider, can't you get out of the tub?

    We used to call my granddad Spiderman. Not cos he had super powers, he just had trouble getting out of the bath! ;)

    Where I live during the week has been full a huge spiders for about a month. Knowing the statistics, I'm really afraid of feeling one in my mouth if i wake up suddenly.

    In my total combined time of living in Sweden (Stockholm, about 14 months) I have seen 1 spider and it was a pretty small one (in Gotland, about 150km away)...

    I don't miss them.

    I hate the creatures, makes my skin crawl.

    Literally.

    If they went extinct, I wouldn't mind.

    Yeah, I just squashed one, sneaking about. A whole 3-4 centimeters across it was.

    I have been informed that they are here, in the usual numbers, but if so I have no idea where and, quite frankly, I don't care! I shall leave them to there spidery business, not go looking for them, and live my life in spiderless bliss.

    Wow, that's beautiful.

    Spiders COME IN during WINTER, by the way. That's when you're more likely to see them, particularly in drafty houses.

    I can't believe the number of men I know who are scared of spiders! They're pretty harmless and are great at killing mosquitoes, daddy long legs and other nasty bugs that annoy me.

    No! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    I hate them so much. Does anyone know of any actual, properly effective things to keep them away? Like spray, or one of those plug-in things that make noises.

    BL - as I've said in many spider threads, conkers in all corners of every room work a treat. You cn get some "Spider-Gone" spray of some sort. Containing none other than horse chestnut oil.

    Cannot believe you guys are actually considering sprays to get rid of them.

    You will pay I tells ya. Just wait until all the other little critters take over after you have annihilated all the spiders.
