101 Things I Wish some-one would invent...

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

Brilliant idea - will you travel to Swindon? I've got one in the bathroom you can rehome for me.

still need a method that doesn't dismember them though, also you would have to cover travel and food costs :)

My mum catches them in a matchbox. Take the drawer bit out completely and drop it over the spider, then slide the outer cover back over. They soon lift their feet up out of the way. Don't do what she did though and put two in the box at the same time. By the time she got outside to release them she just had one fat one.
