Check out this big bastard I found in the kitchen yesterday.

It had a massive body but smaller legs compared to the usual garden spider you might see skulking about the house, thought it was maybe a false widow but don't know how far north they have come. Off out to the garden with him anyway. Last seen scurrying away under some heather.

Monty LewLew weird as fuck this morning, was just lying in bed, no windows or that were open and I heard this buzzing, thought it must be some cunt cutting their grass or something then I realised it was a fucking wasp, can't work out how it got in the room, no doors were open to the room since and all the windows shut, a real modern day mystery.

Have a squish to kill policy with spiders in my house.

Just about everything else gets a free pass and my assistance getting back outside again - though a wasp yesterday really tried my patience and just wouldn’t leave out if the gaping window.

Such a dumb wee prick

Catch and release for all of them, only reason I don't kill wasps is because when you kill them it attracts their pals and I'm not dealing with a gang of the little fuckers gunning for revenge.

One crawled up the ironing board as I was doing my bit yesterday. Gave him a warning blast of steam but he persisted. I took no little pleasure melting him against the edge of my iron.

Made me feel like a man.

Walter - that's just a house spider. They can still give you a nasty nip though.

False Widows are quite small - light body, orangey/brown legs.

They'll kill you.

Then eat you.

Kill All Spiders.

Fuck wasps aye.

One of my mates lives up north, pretty rural, and has a couple of bee hives. He was telling me all about it recently. Really interesting, sounds pretty cool keeping bees. The colony was doing really well and if they do well then they can split; they made another queen and the old queen was essentially evicted, and took half the workers with her. They swarmed on a tree, so he had to saw off the tree branch and then throw them onto a board to go in a new hive.

Fucking cool.

I pass spider related duties to the wifie.

Wasps however are such a dilemma are they not? Good for the environment - don't we all love a good pollinator? - and they eat the annoying wee insects but they're dangerous. Had a wasp nest last year and normally I'd deal with them myself but this one? In the loft, no quick retreat possible, so I called in a professional. This boy was all confidence, dealt with loads man, went up there in t shirt and shorts. Saw what he was dealing with and was back in the van pulling a second padded protective suit on top of his first padded protective suit. Monty Chuckle

Fair play tho, hit it with a stick and took the black&yellow army down with a freezing knock& down spray. Carnage.
