Spiders love to hide in clutter, so keeping your home tidy will likely prevent spiders from leaving your home this season. Professor Adam Hart added: ‘We have very few creatures in the UK that can do us any real harm, and house spiders, despite their formidable appearance, are not out to do us harm.’

“If you trap it in a glass and use a piece of paper to close the glass and put the spider out, that’s great. If you can’t cope with that, or your glass isn’t big enough, it might be helpful to get one of those ‘grab the spider’ products that “It closes on the spider and allows you to take it outside at arm’s length.”
