A false widow has taken up residence on the inside of my kitchen window. It can't get any further as there is a fly net but I don't know if I should catch it to throw outside or make it quick and hoover it up. It's definitely a false widow and I know it's not fair to kill something just because it's venemous but is it right to release it back outside?
Can they use their fangs or venom to get through a fly net? It's not very strong material so not sure I can bear leaving it and going to bed tonight and risk waking up tomorrow to find the spider gone and a hole in the net. It's made it's self at home in a small hole in the window frame though. A hole that up until yesterday a much smaller spider had been living in for a few weeks and I didn't mind. What a way to go.
