Spiders from Mars!!

If you are arachnophobic look away now... A small piece of video from our security system...

Arachnids or spiders to you and I, are a CCTV camera's arch-enemy particularly at night when their webs, almost invisible during the day reflect the camera's infra red illumination back into the lens. This in turn triggers false motion sensed recordings and we have had several alarms recently which I think are quite stunning and worth sharing with you..

You can of course get anti spider spray which should keep spiders away from the cameras.... What and spoil all the fun of watching them dangling around!!!!

Now come on - you can't fool me. That's Colin doing his favourite party trick - I bet he does shadow boxing as well !!

Ha ha Jean I was thinking along the same lines. I have to admit to hating spiders but we seem to have more than our share. I am better here though than I used to be in S.Africa. Shudder, Diane

That is lovely... do you have the very long-legged, small-bodied spiders indoors? We've hundreds and they seem to multiply quicker than we can get rid of them... and they are not too succesful at getting rid of the flies either!!

Yes Tim we have the same problem with the them. Now we are back home I am going to see if I can see what that spider actually looks like...
