spider experts – help!
I can’t tell what it might be. I normally go on head shape and eyes, fangs, body shape, habitat and colouration. I can’t see most of those in the photo.
UK spiders are pretty harmless though. They have small fangs and very mild venom. I can’t tell what that one is but it’s not one of the more nasty UK ones. You could try looking here again
Yours looks like an adult too, so it is probably coincidental you have found 3, rather than a nest dispersing and young leaving home ( not sure if that bit of info is reassuring or not 🙂 ).Posted 4 years agoroperMember
Going by that last photo I’d say it is either a Hacklemesh Weaver or something similar. These tend to have very small spinnerets so you could look and see. The one in the photo might be near a moult which is why we can’t see any specific markings on its bum. They tend to become darker at this time.
If you have seen a smaller version, and it is the same species then you may have had a nest near by. They are cannibalistic so might reduce there numbers by themselves.
I’ve just bought a Cupiennius salei, one of these.Posted 4 years ago
They are ridiculously fast and would soon clear up any wandering spiders you might have.maxtorqueMember
Yesterday evening a spider came wandering into the kitchen, so i conscientiously and carefully scooped it up onto a bit of paper, and carted it out into the garden, carefully laying it down without harming it.Posted 4 years ago
Literally, before i had even turned my back, a magpie swooped down and gobbled him up right in front of my eyes……. Sorry about that matey, but i tried! 😉
