3 Reasons Why Spiders Are Good To Have Around

It seams like Spiders are absolutely everywhere at the moment right? Right! It’s the time of year the males  crawl out of the crevices looking for female counterparts to mate with before bedding down for the winter. According to entomologist Professor Adam Hart, in a recent study of arachnid life cycles, 82% of indoor sighting are males with the females preferring to stick windowsills / webs in and around the house( http://www.bioone.org/doi/abs/10.13156/arac.2017.17.7.331).This influx is a short lived phenomenon but having spiders around isn’t really a bad thing at all! Really!

Heres 3 reasons why Spiders are actually Good to have around!

They are generalist predators and eat the pesky flies and insects thats inhabit our         homes They don’t discriminate between blow flies cluster flies or cockroaches and prey will do!
