Experts say that “the number of giant house spiders creeping into UK homes is set to rise after the hot wet summer weather”. (BBC News, 22.08.15 – we’d link you to the article, but it’s full of graphic spider pictures!)

Our PestBye™ Advanced Spider Repellent clears your whole house through ultrasonic sounds and electromagnetic waves and carries a 45 day no quibble money back guarantee.

Bamboo Stainless Steel Water Feature at PrimroseWe’ve had some brilliant reviews in the last couple of weeks, here are the funniest ones as chosen by the team.

Which is your favourite one?

Mini Mister Blue LED:

I love it, its going to make my Halloween cauldron look fabulous.

Advanced Spider Repellent – Whole House:

Usually have spiders that look like they are able to move the furniture around but have not seen any lately :)))

Brilliant ! For the first week after we plugged it in we had more spiders than we would usually have but obviously if these were already in the house the repellent is making them want to leave so we found them all by doors or windows and all were very dozy so were easy to dispose of !

Since that first week no spiders at all and I feel a lot happier and more confident knowing that we have this repellent . I have bought one for my daughter as well and recommended it to some of my friends who are also arachnophobes !

Squirrel and Mink Cage Trap:

Two squirrels are having an extended ‘holiday’ about a mile away, but they haven’t sent me a postcard yet!

Squirrel managed to eat the bait (bread coated in peanut butter) through the wire cage and then set off the trap by kicking the whole thing through 90 degrees!I have added extra wire mesh and secured the trap to the lawn with tent pegs – have not trapped anything yet. 16/10/2013

I gave a review on16th October regarding a squirrel trap supplied by Primrose. I mentioned that I had to make some modifications to the product but had not yet trapped a squirrel. I am delighted to report that since then two squirrels have been caught! 28/10/2013

Stainless Steel Bamboo Tubes Water Feature With LED Lights:

Clear step by step instructions would have made my rating excellent. Make a cup of tea look at where you are going to put the feature and think it through. You will need to drill a hole or two to make it fit together properly. Its worth noting that the transformer type light plug and control switch have to be kept dry at all times!!
Everyone that has seen it has loved it!!

PestBye Jet Spray Repeller:

We have found the ultra sound scarer normally works if not immediately then within a few days but recently we have been getting early morning visits from a stubborn cat who was defiant, that is until the Jet sprayer was deployed (——– WHOOSH jumped in the air and beat Usain Bolt’s time for 100 metres, not been back for over a week now!

We use the independent review service Feefo for all of our sites. This helps us both in getting impartial reviews and product feedback from our customers. Some of the reviews are brilliant and highly unusual. Take a look and see if you can spot any other funny ones:

We recently held a competition for a chance to win 1 of 3 Advanced Whole House Spider Repellents on our Facebook page.

We have had a fantastic 557 entries with some brilliant suggestions from participants. Quite a few parents would willingly sacrifice their children and quite a few children would rather hide and wait for their parents. Several dogs also appear to be trained to catch spiders for a biscuit reward and the hoover is often used.

Here is a selection of some of our favourite suggestions and please be careful and do not try them all at home as some may not be safe!

  • I’m so scared I’ll get random strangers off the street to come in and catch them for me. I won’t even go to bed if there’s one on my landing!
  • Let my snake out!
  • Move to my mother’s!
  • My poor daughter has to get rid of them for me bless her. She’s only 7!
  • Pay my daughter to get rid of the ones she isn’t scared of and she is only 10…
  • My wife always gets me to get rid of them even though she hates them. I have to show her I have it in my hand before putting it outside.
  • Pass out.
  • Start sweating and batter it with a shoe.
  • They’re usually in the bath so I hang a towel over the edge, let them crawl onto it then shake it out of a window – keeping hold of the towel of course!
  • Put them outside. Never kill them they helped in the war clean wounds.
  • Ask my partner to remove humanely whilst I scream blue murder!
  • Call my dad up crying cause I use to hoover them till I realised they actually came back out!
  • Catch them with my hands like a real man does!
  • Fetch neighbour while screaming.
  • Get Daddy to get them for me!
  • Hide until my mam comes home, she then sets it free outside kicking and screaming!!
  • Hyperventilate, become hysterical, drag people off the street to rescue me.
  • I freeze and go into a cold sweat then scream not a pleasant sight!
  • I once got trapped by one in the garage so I fashioned a flamethrower with a can of wd40 and a lighter … problem solved! 😉
  • I spray them with cleaning fluids, then they shrivel up & then I hoover them up. I feel terrible afterwards though.
  • I try and ignore them.
