Britain has more than 600 species of spiders, all of them harmless to man. Most arachnids (spiders) are predatory, feeding mainly on insects and they are extremely beneficial invertebrates, especially in the garden. Sadly, millions of perfectly rational people are terrified of spiders, so we must provide the most effective means of removal without resorting to killing the spiders. The best means of removal is containment and release.
Where are they found?
Most spiders have just strayed into our homes and would rather be outside in the garden. The kindest thing to do it put them back into their natural environment.
