    My Sportback is parked next to a hedge on our driveway, and every morning in summer I always walk through a spider's web just to get to the driver's door, then spend ages trying to wipe it off my face and clothes!

    Why don't you put some of these on?

    I suppose if they are further out the spider will have more of a task to get to it. Therfore giving up and trying another car with smaller mirrors!!!

    My mate is in Afghanistan at the moment and he is paranoid about some spiders out there (may be the camel ones).

    But the male comes and bite you while your sleeping and you dont feel it. The done even show up as big marks just like little red spots.

    Then the female comes and lays eggs in you and before you know it baby spiders are coming out your leg!!

    Catch a dady long legs..... (nuf of them about at the moment)... place in spiders web and when the little fecker comes out lunch after sensing the DLL trying to escape - a simple flick of the finger may do the trick ;)

    I was staying at a mates down south a couple of weeks ago sorting out his new studio pooters and when I was leaving his other half started to air her disgust about spiders in the mirrors. I mentioned that I'd been meaning to pull the glass out of mine and remove some of the more stubborn ones which had moved in when my car was sat idle for a while.

    Bit of a foot-in-mouth moment though, guess what matey ended up getting told to do to the mrs' car! ...And I've still not shifted mine.

    Regards,

    Rob.

    You guys reckon you've got a problem?!?!
    Well triy this one, I'm a gardener, and I got in my car this morning to find my steering wheel covered in a web! The offender was sitting right in the middle! What on earth it thought it would trap sitting with on its web inside my a3 I'll never know! Anyway, I evicted him sharpish! Must have been on me when I got in the car! uurrgh.

    Well we are feeding two outside our office on a waste bin daily with flies and dll we are catching. Seriously cool watching the yellow striped legs of our little matilda killing the flies. Sad I know but she is cool. I'll get a pic tomorrow when the backstard rain stops.

    We have the camel spiders out here at work in the Sahara, they tend not to bother with people and stuff. But if you walk or run towards them (I have not tried this, but I will take the word of the person that told me) they will not run away, but run towards you...

    When they bite you they inject you and make the area go all num and then start to eat you..

    Not heard of anybody being attacked by one of these in years.. well the 6 years I been working out here.. just pleased the UK does not have any big nasty ones
