    There was a BBC program about spiders a year or two ago and I remember being surprised, when they mentioned that the Daddy Long Legs, usually got the better of the House Spider. I found this Daddy Long Legs in my hallway this morning, and it certainly has got the better of the House Spider.

    Surprising. I thought other way round. Must be a shock for the spider.

    Now that all makes sense. I was wondering how a Crane Fly could beat a spider. Have never heard the term Cellar Spider, but I have now.

    I guess with cellars being less common now, the name may be falling out of use.

    Well they're all home cinemas, swimming pools and gyms, aren't they? :)

    Home cinema spider sounds far more sinister.

    I think of them as ceiling spiders. They don't seem to mind being upstairs so long as they have a corner they can make a web in and hang from.

    They are a rare sight up here but really common down south.

    Don't know about swimming pools, but my dad sometime had to wear wellies when he in went into ours for a shovel full of coal.
