Ok so I've just been cleaning out my cat's outside hut thing and there were a few slugs and spiders and webs lodging in there.. This BEAST was lurking in there! It's soooooo massive!!!! I got it to leave but I know it will go back in. It's got a big grey shiny thing underneath it
Worried it it might be something a little unusual that may bite

Looks pretty normal to me and the grey shiny thing is probably an egg sac. No need to call out the rangers yet

Really.. ugh my skin still keeps shivering.. I've seen looads of spiders, I don't know why but they seem to live my house and garden.. but never seen one this massive.. wish they would stop invading my blooming life
Sod that, I'd be moving house if that was in my post code.
Yep. I agree with tallpete33. Had one about this size in my daughter's bed last weekend.
Luckily Daddy was on hand to sort it out
Nuke from orbit... Only way to be sure

Hahaha I'll tell him not to be home too late if I see him
I hate spiders. One morning I got up and had a wash, dried my face on the towel. When I looked in the mirror I had a massive spider smeared across my face.... Ugh!

No worries, he said he liked your garden more than mine, I have to let him go at some point anyway!

Lol your Spider-Man!
Looks like a "Giant house Spider" they seem to love my house, I'm always throwing them out, very rare they bite you which they can, I've never been bitten.

I had to save it from my cat. When I went to clean his hut out he was actually inside it so he came out then I saw that spider.. there were so many webs in there I was surprised.. must have been living there for ages. Pusscat (my cat) was watching Sid the spider so had to shop him eating him. I wonder why he never noticed him in there before, bet Sid crawled on Pusscat lots of times lol

Please Don't hoover the spiders up it takes them days to die of dehydration better to kill them outright than do that.I am not encouraging you to kill them btw just not want them to suffer poor things
If you don't want spiders in your house (like me... I'm terrified of them) then I very highly recommended one of if these
....repellers. I've been using them for the last 10 years or so and they absolutely work for me in keeping those monsters out of my house. primrose.co.uk/-p-…BwE
amazon.co.uk/Spi…IRE

Check out the video among the product photos. I bought one of these spider catchers a few years ago when on offer and now I don't have to get up to deal with spiders as anyone can do it. It's nice that it doesn't kill spiders and the trick is that it's got a long reach (plus your arms length) so confidence is restored. Look at me I should be their salesman
If we didn't have spiders who is going to eat the disease ridden flys that feed on poo.
I would rather have a clean spider in the house than flys every where.
No one made me judge jury and executioner so why should we kill spiders just for living.
I don't like the bloke from number 22 and he is ugly but I'm not going to kill him just for existing.
Just pop them back outside, they are not going to hurt you.

Think everyone on here has said they put them outside your neighbour at 22 must be really ugly for you to use him as an examplelol
