The property is theirs now.
Bring regular offerings and do exactly what they ask of you and you may be able to live as one of their subjects.
I have found two recently in my utility room although I just assumed them to be Falsies - Not sure the real thing are really prevalent in the UK?
Nasty looking things. I just caught them and released them.
Indeed, they will be false Widows in the UK. Completely harmless despite what the sensationalist media BS would have you believe.
Not totally harmless, they can still bite (as well as a few other spiders we have in the UK). They probably won't kill you though.
Short of an extremely rare allergic reaction the bite is like a bee sting... i.e harmless.
they will just come back in greater numbers for revenge killings
Nope. Negative. Abort mission and lay down suppressing fire while you retreat.
Don't mind most spiders but wouldn't be happy sharing with a couple of those
If I can recall, weren't some schools closed this year (or in 2018) because of the infestation of spiders. I think they were Black Widows.
They weren't. The UK doesn't really have the right climate for Latrodectus:
False widows not black widows :-
Thats the problem with moving south, we now have all the nasty creatures we didnt have in the north east.
We brought a colony of the real black widows back to the UK in 2012.
The wee horrors made there homes in our Apache rocket pods whilst being on Ex in California ,and were flown back to Suffolk.
Fun times around camp for a while
Are wasps getting bigger in the uk, I swear they’re chonking atm.
Yeah, my Executioner fly zapper is starting to struggle.....still, I do my bit for king and country
Watch out for the nasty brown recluse spiders
We are definitely getting more Hornets. They make Wasps look like fruit flies!
Great, spiders that you can’t kill with an Apache helicopter.
Cockneys, they're called.
Separate names with a comma.
