Why spiders are useful for birds

Spiders are important for biodiversity…They act as pest control, disease prevention and as food supply for others.Sadly many people are afraid of them as they have too many legs, can run quickly or come down from the ceiling on a silk threat etc…

Please do not kill them but catch them.with a glass and by closing it with  a paper, envelope or a postcard and release them outside if you don’t like them indoors. Some  spiders live through the winter so make sure to put them inside your shed or the loft until spring time as otherwise their fragile bodies can freeze outdoors- hence they seek shelter in the warmth of your home.
