SPI­DER S.O.S.

UK

First News - - Front Page -

The RSPB is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to stop squash­ing spi­ders and to give them a home. The UK is home to 650 dif­fer­ent species of spi­der and they are ac­tu­ally re­ally use­ful. They eat bugs in your house and chomp on in­sects that feast on farm­ers’ crops, so they act as a nat­u­ral pes­ti­cide. In fact, daddy long-legs spi­ders (also known as cel­lar spi­ders) eat around 700,000 tonnes of bugs ev­ery year. Do you let spi­ders live in your house?
