I live in a rural area, surrounded by fields, farms forests etc. Spiders are a problem all year round.
They get worse in the late summer-early autumn.

The spiders themselves are not too much of a problem, as soon as you wet the window they start abseiling out of the way. Webs too, are easy to deal with.

Itís the spider nests that are the worst, right in the corner of windows and stuck like superglue. Hot water really helps, along with a brisk side-to-side motion with the brush.

My technique is this: clean the frames first, the spider webs will get on the brush, but can easily be brushed off in one clump by just rubbing the brush against the wall. That works best with rendered walls.

Wash the frames, the glass, and the sills. If spiders are anywhere else, then they are left where they are. As someone else rightly said, weíre not in the pest control business.

The worst type of houses for spiders are those with rendered walls and wooden frames.

Iíve no idea why rendered walls seem to attract spiders, maybe their little legs can walk over them more easily. No idea!

But my most important tip is to price them in. It takes extra time dealing with spider webs, make sure to account for them when quoting.

Does anyone find when scrubbing the webs off the glass that the lighter you scrub the easier it comes off

Yes, just a flick is all most need.

I do that sometimes when the brush canít quite dig them out but do you find they pop sometimes when you press them with your finger😂😂

A microfibre cloth wiped over a web that's stuck on glass takes it off effortlessly on the first pass.

I can scrub the same web for minutes with any brush you like, natural fibre, hog hair, DuPont its all the same.

All brushes are limited to their abilities.

I find the microfibre on the wagtail high flyer to be the best I've ever used, it's such a shame we can't have a brush with some kind of microfibre incorporated into it. A bit like the reach it constructor with all the add ins but more practical for every day use and suited to the uk market. Now that would be an ultimate brush.
