Life will suck for spiders


A COLONY of large spiders, normally seen only in caves and tunnels, is to be “sucked up the spout” and rehoused after taking up residence in a disused building earmarked for redevelopm­ent.

Some of the cave spiders were unwittingl­y transporte­d from their home at a cave in the Yorkshire Dales, by archaeolog­ists who carried out a major survey of the cave 10 years ago.

Now a vacuum cleaner will suck up the colony of more than 150 spiders, who will be rehoused.
