It's spider season here at Paisley HQ. I stepped on a huntsman yesterday afternoon with my bare feet. No harm done - I think I scared him (her? I didn't check that closely...) more than me. I scooped him up in a glass and popped him onto the front garden.
I leave most of the spider webs around my place intact in the hope that the spiders will eat up more of the flying insects like flies and mozzies.
