Does anyone know what these things are on the ceiling. GS thinks that they are eggs. Don't know whether to get rid of them or wait to see what happens.

Surely they are spiderlings. Young spiders -mum is the big one.

I think you're right , midgey. they are in the downstairs loo and the Dad is in the opposite corner. Looks like I'm going to be overrun with them. I don't like killing them.

Midgey does your name imply you are an expert on Daddy Long Legs?

Get rid of them all or your loo will be full of the large sized ones in no time.I use a fluffy duster thing ( on a stick) they stay on it and you can shake it outside.

I’m with lemon, get rid of them, any way you like, but get rid of them.

You need to at least move them otherwise they'll all grow up into big daddy long legs.
