Are There Giant Spiders In Your Garden Building?
Has your garden building been invaded by giant spiders this summer? Our rather naff summer, which has gone from wet to warm to wet again, has led to an explosion in the number and size of our normal species.
Spiders love to make their nests in warm dry places, so sheds, workshops and garden buildings make ideal homes for our eight legged friends and there’s not really been, or probably ever will be a way to stop them taking residence until now.
There’s now a new shed on the market that claims to SPIDER PROOF, which is a world first apparently. Introducing the spider-proof garden shed from Tiger Sheds.
The Tiger Sheds spider-proof shed contains a whole host of anti-spider features, including:
- All joints silicone sealed to ensure no gaps and cracks
- Airtight windows with toughened glass and an airtight door with special draft seal to ensure there’s no way for creepy crawlies to sneak in
- Interior lined with spider repellent lining paper to stop spiders coming in through the cladding
- Sky blue exterior cladding, a colour that’s proven to repel spiders
- Heavy duty polyester backed felt roof to keep bugs and water out
- A fun ‘No Spiders’ allowed sign to ensure everyone knows it’s a spider-free zone
We’ve also created a series of optional extras, for those who want to be extra sure that cobweb dwellers are kept out. They include:
- Impregnated wood – option to have the wood the shed is constructed from impregnated with peppermint, citrus and insecticide (scents which are proven to repel eight-legged creatures)
- A ‘Creepy Crawly’ den, which is a specially designed box that’s dark inside and comes complete with holes and cracks for spiders to crawl into that sits beside the shed and attracts spiders away from the outbuilding and into it instead
- A pest test carried out every six months by a fully trained member of the Tiger Sheds team, who will carefully inspect your spider-proof shed to ensure there’s no sign of any creepy crawlies
However, all of this peace of mind comes with a rather hefty price tag of £1,999.
