It would make sense it's something you won't be using very often this year Suffy.

Street bunting, party poppers, bottles of champagne, bouncy castles for the kids etc Wink

Totally gutted my shed the other day. The arachnids I uncovered would have put a Wuhan wet market to shame.

Got rats under my allotment sheds, but am used to them now, except when I opened a compost bin a couple of months ago, and one lept out right out over my shoulder.
I screamed very loudly. affraid

I'd get rid of the verminous bastards. Crypto Spiridium, Weils Disease, E Coli there's pretty well nothing you can't catch from a Rat and if not dealt with the population can double every few weeks. More of a worry than coronavirus.

Categorically no. False widow is very small.

It looks like a female tegeneria gigantea. From the family of house spiders. Totally harmless unless you're a wood louse. I am a bit of an amateur entomologist.

It's actually from the same tegenaria family. Again its probably gigantea. These are very commonly found in sheds and garages. The females stay there all year round and the males wander off in the autumn looking for females to mate with often venturing into houses which is why you find huge spiders in your house in the autumn. This example is probably a female without eggs (no swollen abdomen). Males are quite distinctive from females as they have much longer legs and bigger pedipalps (feelers on the head).

I can remember coming across Camel Spiders in Jordan, fearsome feckers looked more like scorpions then arachnids

I think I have said before how I used to play with big spiders in my Grandmother's garden when I was young. It was only later as an adult that I realised they were the ones that came over with the bananas stored at the 'Geese' fruit warehouse a couple of hundred yards away.

Pretty sure that’s a house spider. They can give a nasty nip.

cleaned inside all the guttering on my conservatory today using a set of telescopic ladders (good bits of kit if you can suss them out without losing your fingers) 7 pounds of fermented leaves,dead insects, seagul shit, silt and crisp packets were retrieved. A right bio hazard in itself.
Might attempt the soffit boards tomorrow put that would be pushing it a bit too far with the safety side of things using telescopics.

Was down at Newton Abbot Town Quay at teatime looking for a non native Hydroid e.g in waders looking into the river water, am used to the strange looks - football, indeed all sport seems a distant memory now, although I am aware the cricket season would have started next week.
