Ever since I took delivery of my QASHQAI, second day at home opened doors to Little spiders rolling down from Webs, brushed them away, then wife spotted another one, almost on a daily occurrence there's little brown Spiders, the other day I had ine crawling my leg whilst driving? There beyond a joke now? Anyone help me please???? I've tried insect spray and shut doors, no luck though, still there?

Hi Fujitsu, glad it's not mine .

You don't say if your car is new or second hand. If it's new... Call the dealer. If it's second hand, give it a good vacuum , and mix 3oz white vinegar with 1 oz vanilla essence and spray the car, also soak cotton balls in the solution and leave around the car. Don't forget under the floor in boot.

We have some small spiders that seem to hang out in the door mirrors. I have tried jet washing the mirrors but still get webs decorating the car every morning!

I myself have had normal spiders on mirrors as you mention, but no these are a light brown I think,
They seem to be like baby's, if the mother is larger that is, but to me I've never seen any like this, they are light brown I think,
I tried wasp killer, sprayed car shut doors, still there next day, but with hit weather, I've had one crawling my leg whilst driving!!!!!!
Now it's not funny, Sorry about description, it's the New Model Qashqai 1.5 ......are these assembled in uk?

They're built in Sunderland, Fujitsu.

I have a flea spray that kills everything it's called " virbac " contains. Pyriproxyfen & permethrin.

Only available from the vet. It cost £12.00 per 500ml tin.

If the spiders walk through the spray.... ( even once dry) they take it back to the nest and kill the horrid little monsters

Tiff

P.s if you get it.... Don't breath in the mist/ vapours. Open all windows for an hour or so before driving.

I replied on Twitter this morning:

Spiders are enjoying a bumper year nothing to do with where you are or what car you drive.

Get some conkers, spider hate them and avoid any area.
