The South of England is playing host to venomous spiders and not only that - they’re breeding and spreading across the country.
What’s more, their bite is potentially lethal - deadly in fact - potentially fatal - often unpleasant . . .
Yes it seems climate change continues to bring us the benefits of more exotic climates - this time it’s a relative of the Black Widow spider. Several people have already been hospitalized by bites although none have yet died - which is good for them but from a purely journalistic point of view - not so good for the story.
The bite is potentially lethal though - The real question is though . . .
Are There Poisonous Spiders in Lincolnshire ?
No I don’t believe so - the only Black Widows we need to worry about are the predatory females
It does make you wonder whether we are in for some real changes over the next few years. Yesterday I was reading that big cats would soon be part of the scenery in certain places and that Puma, Lynx and Wolves could be part of the natural countryside as they breed and create hybrids !
We already have The Grimsby Growler in the nature park behind my house of course !
Escaped snakes are also beginning to adapt and survive it seems not to mention plagues of Mosquitoes in Lincolnshire - what still beats me is that all this is being made possible by Global Warming according to ‘The Experts’ - if that’s so
Why is it always so bloody cold and rainy ?
Talking of Global Warming - remember the Great Goldeneye Plan - worth a read if you’ve the time
If you’ve been bitten in the night, glimpsed a snake or a growler - do let us know.
