Wingnut old chap as you like creepy crawlies have you been down to look at the wild scorpions in Essex................Link searching............
There were a load in Ongar, which is about 3 miles from me.
Yep that was the place they were supposed to be.
Blimey, did you read the other story about the ones near Windsor Castle....that was probably more worrying!!I don't mind spiders, and never kill them, I live in a 130 year old house with a lot of them in and it keeps the flies down, but the one thing that has stopped me going to Aus is the proliferation of bitey, stingy things they have out there!!
Eldest son caught one while on holiday in France two years ago. Was fine feeding it wasps and flies etc and then found it was a female.Looked at it one day and saw white speckles all over it's brown back. Looked more closely and yep there were about 20 more of the little blighters. Thought it best to free the mum then.................
