Spring is around and with the first warm day, I am just seeing spiders and their webs reappearing all around the place.

Ants too.

And with a new Travis McEnery video, let's discuss what crawlies have appeared in your neighbourhood this spring.

The giant house spider has become pretty common here in the UK in the last few years

I don't tend to mind smaller spiders but THIS thing?

I see one of those crawling towards me and I'm running a mile


Was it ever not?
I think House spiders have been common around in Europe for like since I was a little child.

False widows, though, at least the Noble False Widow have been increasing in numbers in the UK.

To be honest, these spiders still freak me out when I find them around the house.
They're fast, but apparently, despite their size rather skittish.

I recently peeled one from inside the doorframe and lifted it to some bush outside.

But, like, how scary they may look at first, they tend to have a pretty cool pattern on their back, if you just happen to be able to observe them a bit.

One thing I have to say about travis McEnery videos on spiders, the whole "cheese test" gimmick makes the spiders just look more vulnerable and I don't know if it just applies to me only, but it just makes them less scary to me.

I've noticed these spiders being rather recent myself.
Why? Why has it become a recent thing?

I imagine the cold weather of the last few months has forced many of them to find shelter which in turn has lead to a lot more breeding than usual

I'm not saying they're a recent thing in the last few months. It's just they're a revelation to me when I first noticed them a few short years a go when I found this massive spider in the bath tub this one time. I try to wash it down the plug hole but even in it's scrunched-up state it was too big to fit down the train.

just relocate to the outside in an alive state

I think I found an ant mimic in my home today.
First time ever that I found one.


Adding yet another interesting video into this thread.
