Is it possible to have one? My feeling is that the answer is a resounding "NO!" along with "get a grip ... you're a gardener!" ha ha! I would love to have my own little place to chill out in and work from but the spider thing just freaks me out!

Hope you're all having a good day, Tia.

You can get sprays to stop spiders coming in but don't know how effective they are.
I have used conkers in the bedrooms which did seem to have an effect on the spider numbers.

I think it would have to be airtight as some spiders are so tiny, so you'd probably suffocate yourself while you were chilling out!

Could you keep a cat in there? They eat spiders!

I imagine you wouldn't get so many if sheds weren't so dry... but kind of defeats the purpose wink

so we need a wet air-tight space to prevent spider ingress. So it's a swimming pool then. grin

Yes, get a grip, you're a gardener smile I used to be worried about spiders in my house but was given a spider catcher gadget, like a see-through pyramid on a stick, and that deals with them. In the shed, after the wasps, mice and legions of other encroaching wild-life, the spiders seem quite cuddly by comparison.

Hee hee ... thought as much! Had a good giggle at your replies tho smile Guess I'll just chill out on the patio then!
