There are approximately 660 species of spider in the UK, and a few of these are regularly encountered in our houses. Find out more about the most common household visitors.

Good information about the spiders you find in and around your home, easy to use. Could be improved by including more types of spiders and maybe other creepy crawlies :)
Spider in da house
A fun app for all the family. Just spot a spider, whether in the house or while out and identify it with the pictures, and you can learn a little about it and how it lives from the notes that accompany the pictures.
I would say its great but...it's about spiders. The information is clear and interesting. The pictures are very... Graphic, so now you can stare at the things that creep you out most (in my case the name of my existence *shudders* ) overall very good!
