Fill out details and click Submit. If your message is about the identification of a spider, please provide the date of the sighting and the location in the form of a full postcode or Ordnance Survey grid reference. If your query is about identification or false widow spiders, or you want to submit a record, you must be able to provide a good quality photograph (NOT A VIDEO) to help answer your query. You will be asked to send this when you receive an email reply to your request. Without a photograph of your spider, we will not be able to help. The photograph needs to show the top surface of the spider and to be close up, in focus, not against a coloured background and not blurred. Photographs taken through glass or plastic inside a container will not provide adequate information.
If your enquiry is about false widow spiders please first see the false widow page on this website and BAS website . PLEASE NOTE, WE CANNOT PROVIDE ADVICE ON REMOVAL OF SPIDERS OR ANY FURTHER ADVICE THAN ALREADY AVAILABLE IN THESE LINKS.
