Just scoop them up in your hand and put them outside.

Do you notice that you have less spiders in your house if you do your housework regularly?
And for those who are like me and are a bit on the slobby side with housework, do you notice you get a lot more of them?
The reason I'm asking is that I've been seeing loads of spiders this past couple of months. I moved into my house last autumn and didn't see very many. But since about Easter I've seen a lot of them. I will admit I'm really struggling to get into a routine with the house and while the kitchen worktops are kept clean (same for the loo and bathroom sink) I have let the rest of it go. It's untidy and dusty and needs a good hoovering.
I'm feeling overwhelmed by it now (seems like a massive task) but if someone can tell me they keep a nice house and hardly have any spiders, I think that will motivate me to get it clean and keep it that way.
The house is only about 30 years old btw. I've lived in all sorts of houses from brand new to Victorian and never had such a problem with spiders...that's why I think it's associated to my lack of housekeeping skills.

Write to HH62 ask her to send you a box of her spiders, they'll eat the woodlice for you.

I get my DH to do that for me. I could never, ever, ever, pick a spider up :eek:
I have a problem with spiders on my rotary washing line - every time I go out to hang up washing I take a duster with me to flick away the cobwebs. The neighbours must think I'm a nutter 'dusting' the washing line :rotfl:

eeeeeeek! :eek: touch spiders? no way!
the only thing worse than seeing a big spider is when you see one, then look back and its gone.... where did it go? hiding waiting to jump out at me?
(as you can tell, i am TERRIFIED of spiders...)
