Spider in da house!

This time of the year, numerous spiders leave our wildlife gardens to venture into our houses, often ending up in the bath!! Recently, the Society of Biology launched a new recording app and is asking everyone to report their findings. The app ‘Spider in da House’ is available free in the Android and Apple app stores, and records can be submitted online. Another Citizen Science project. More information here

Females usually stay in their webs awaiting a male or to catch prey, as this garden spider is doing. It is usually males that enter houses and if they cannot get out, many die.
