Pest Controller Finds His Home Infested With Spiders Sporting ‘Glowing Green’ Fangs

You can’t really escape insects all together. They are a part of the world we live in as much as we are. So, finding a wasp buzzing next to your ear or a spider trapped inside your sink shouldn’t be such a big deal, yet it somehow is.

Spiders come in various shapes, sizes and colors. They can be the regular tennant that doesn’t pay rent or your worst nightmare that bites you in your sleep, either way you’ll never know until the bite happens, and then, it might be too late. This is why we are so afraid of spiders, scientifically known as arachnophobic.

It is every modern-day human’s worst nightmare and it seems professionals are creeped out by them too! A pest controller has captured footage showing how the walls of his own house are infested with hundreds of venomous spiders with ‘glowing green’ fangs.

Grant Wood says that when he discovered the tube web spiders in his home in Bracknell, Northamptonshire, a year ago, there were around 100 but they have since quadrupled in numbers. Yikes! The 40-year-old compares the infernal arachnids to the ominous spiders seen in the Harry Potter franchise.

He posted a video to show others the ‘scary’ creatures, when one jumped on his head. In the hair-raising clip, the giant creepy crawlies can be seen lurking in burrows in the wall and darting out to bite a twig that he pokes them out with. The irony that so many of these “mini tarantulas" have chosen the home of a pest controller to infest in not lost on Grant. It is good to keep a sane sense of humor in times like these.

Grant says: “Spiders are one of nature’s best pest controllers, perhaps that’s why I get along with them so well." The scary crawly creatures are very good at controlling the other insect populations by eating other nocturnal insects, so you should thank them for fending you from cockroaches, moths and even bees and wasps.

The Segestria florentina, also known as a tube web spider, is one of the largest spiders in Britain, with a body that can reach lengths of 2.2cm in females and 1.5 cm in males. This spider mainly inhabits the Mediterranean region, stretching from Georgia to the east, Britain to the North and Algeria to the south. There have been sightings reported in Australia, Argentina and the Atlantic islands. This arachnoid prefers to make homes on south-facing walls and creates a tubular web in which it traps and eats its prey. Although the sting of a web tube spider is reported to be very painful, it isn’t fatal for a human being. It is reported that it stings as much as a bee sting, measuring at 2 points on the Schmidt sting pain index.

    I've never seen these kind of spiders before ... I have only seen the small variety of tube web spiders and that's in my backyard. These ones look big enough to put a leash on and take them for walkies :) .He won't have any bugs ( or mice either, by the size of them ) in his house with these guys around. I do find it a bit ironic that they decided to move into a pest controller's house, though.

      we have these spiders around the outside of our house and garage, we noticed them just after we moved in 12 years ago ,the do attack anything that is presented to them they will occupy any hole or crevice and wonder around at night hunting insects ,we have not had them come inside the home as yet ,they have long pointed shiny legs and they do shine green fangs when a light is pointed at them ,we have come to ignore them they will back away from us ,they keep the bugs down and they love mosquitoes,we live in camberley surrey so they are around the south .

        I'm in London, Ont in Canada .... our tube spiders must be a lot smaller than yours ... and as far as I know, don't have glow in the dark under light green fangs. When they behave themselves ( don't go after us ;) ), spiders are useful
