Giant spiders to invade British homes this autumn

Warm summer has caused spiders to grow bigger.....

Britain's homes are set to be invaded by giant spiders in the coming weeks - after a warm summer has seen arachnids grow. Experts warn the balmy summer provided perfect conditions for the eight-legged creatures to thrive, as they've had plenty to eat and few have died. And as temperatures soon fall, they'll be moving indoors to find a mate, say experts at Sydney University. According to the Mirror, Professor Adam Hart, of the University of Gloucestershire, said: "This year has been seemingly a good one for the invertebrates which spiders feed on, and it's quite mild out there." Both sexes stay in their webs until autumn when the males go in search of females. But, according to the Plymouth Herald, Professor Hart added that people have nothing to fear as the spiders will offer a free insect-control service, saying: "They often feed on the most common species, preventing a few species from becoming dominant. "We want to encourage people to respect and learn more about their little house guests." Speaking to the MailOnline, Mr Lawrence Bee, of the British Arachnological Society, said the fact the mild summer left spiders more prey means "they are appearing a little bigger than average perhaps". He also said people might just notice them more because they are more active, adding: "People are seeing them when they are obvious, and there might be more of them because last winter was quite mild. "The conditions have been better so there may be more around, and it's just the fact people are seeing them more and being aware of them more. This is particularly the case for house spiders."
