Do you live in the United Kingdom and do you hate spiders? If you answered ‘yes’ to both questions then we’ve got some terrible news for you.
According to several reports that recently surfaced online, UK is set to experience a massive spider invasion. It is estimated that around 150 million of these creepy crawlies will be invading homes in the country soon.
If you’re arachnophobic, then this is your worst nightmare come to life!
With the summer months drawing to a close, we learn that experts are anticipating the next several months to bring “hostile weather season” and, yes, “spider nesting season,” a Unilad article tells us.
Apparently, the report continues, the warm summer “produced more flies for the spiders to feed on” which resulted to a huge increase in the population of spiders this year.
About 150 million Eratigena Atrica are “currently nesting” in the “dusty corners”of people’s homes.
As Bristol Zoological Society head of conservation learning Simon Garrett explained:
“Spiders don’t specifically want to enter your home, in fact, they’d rather stay away as there’s less food and it’s too dry and clean.
“It is the need to mate that changes their behavior.”
Statistics inform us that there are about 25 million homes in the UK so if the 150 million estimate proves accurate, that would mean about 6 spiders per home – with each of these dark orange-brown arachnids measuring about 7.5cm in length.
Meanwhile, experts have several suggestions about how to deal with the spiders.
According to pest controllers, sealing door cracks and removing plants around the home can be a good way of keeping the spiders at bay. Additionally, frequent cleaning is also effective since crumbs and dirt tend to draw attention from insects – which the spiders love eating. Other than that, essential oil diffusers can be useful since spiders do not like aromatherapy such as eucalyptus, cinnamon, peppermint, tea tree, and rose.

What a heroic dog!
There are a lot of reasons why dogs became man’s best friend. They’re loyal, they’re cute, they’re sweet, and they’re willing to go to hell and back just to save their owners from harm. Even though they can't express themselves with words, it's pretty obvious that dogs are capable to love.
Back in 2012, images of a mother dog rescuing her ten-day-old pups from a fire surfaced on the internet. The heartwarming images quickly became popular among the netizens during that time.

Farmer in Cambodia Breeds Mutant Pigs With Hulk-Like Muscles
Okja is real.
Anyone who saw Netflix’s Okja knows about the story of this superpig lovingly raised by a girl in a remote village in South Korea that was supposed to be cut up for its super lean meat. The girl then set out on a rescue mission to save Okja from that fate. It turns out that Okja could be real after all and many of these kinds of mutant pigs can be found in Cambodia.
A farm in the Southeast Asian country called Duroc Cambodia, which is believed to be based in Banteay Meanchey, is breeding genetically modified (GM) pigs that look extremely muscular. Photos and videos of these animals have been uploaded on social media and many people were appalled.

Clever People Came Up With The Best ATM Withdrawal Defense Yet
People are bringing along their canine friends to protect them from threats while withdrawing from ATM machines.
While ATM provides convenience in acquiring cash compared to falling in line to make over-the-counter withdrawals, there is an increased risk since people using the machine has become an easy target for crooks.
Using an ATM alone has become very risky these days, most especially during the night. Banks should protect their customers by installing safety features around units like security cameras, cubicle-type walls, and even deploying armed guards.
