This is why you'll see more spiders in your house this week

With heavy rain falling across the UK, spiders are seeking shelter in warm and dry places – like your home.
Earlier in the year, August weather took a turn for the worst as we were hit with a summer washout.
People were warned at the time they may see an influx of spiders in their homes as they seek cover from the conditions.
Now, we’re officially in the midst of spider season as the male creepy crawlies search for females to mate with.
If that wasn’t enough to see more of the eight-legged arachnids in our homes, the current September washout can’t be helping.
This week, the UK has been pounded with heavy rain, which is bound to mean people up and down the country seeing even more spiders in their homes – and the bad weather is only set to continue.
The Met Office say that the wet weather looks set to continue into the second week in October.
With more and more house spiders being spotted in homes, it’s good to know there are ways you can repel the pests.
Home Bargains, for example, are currently selling a spray which promises to banish spiders from your home.
Shoppers are calling the spray a ‘miracle’ – and it’s only retailing at 99p.
