  1. Walked into my girlfriens house last night, as i got into kitchenshe remarked, a spider fell from my head/torso……, it fell to the ground and curled up. i picked it up, upon inspection chuffed to have met with False widow, it was the white mark/ face on abdomen,. Very timid and i placed it outside. Didnt have heart to kill it.

    We live in Elgin area. just for the record.

  2. Definitely found a false widow spider on the brickwork or our verandah in ?Gorleston, Gt. Yarmouth. We love by the cliffs.

  3. Just had one taken from my Garden today. We live in Penicuik. The pest control chap took it to the butterfly and insect world at Dalkeith
