A man from Hertfordshire has come up with a novel de-spidering device for removing spiders from walls or the sides of the bath. John Dony's invention consists of a transparent plastic box, open on one side. You put the open side of the box over the spider, trapping it, and then blow through a flexible plastic tube on the opposite side of the box to blast the spider off the wall so that it falls harmlessly into a trap under the box. You then take trap and spider outside and let it go. Or you can stamp on it.
