Strawberries and spiders
Hezaire · 30/07/2015 08:05
Need to make a quick decision here. Found 3 live spiders in my supermarket strawberries. Freaked me out a bit but I don't know why really. Makes sense that there would be little creatures in my fruit. Biggest one was maybe the size of 10p. Aibu to throw them away though?

Wash them, all strawberries have had insects crawling over them at some point.
I take it you haven't grown your own fruit and veg bluestars, bringing produce in from the garden, or washing a newly picked lettuce in the sink, watching spiders, bugs and slugs float away before making a salad.
Bugs are a nomal part of garden life.

strawberries are revolting
take them outside and stamp on them until they are DEAD
build a home for the spiders and establish a spidery community, putting on a revue show for them at christmas and making sure they are supplied with a constant supply of free flies, wonder web, and spiderman cartoons (they find him hilarious)
