Does anyone else have this problem, everyday theres more webs on the mirrors,

and i keep sweeping them away, but the spiders just wont go away! And their in both mirrors.

I find webs on the rear wiper too, god knows where that one's nesting.

I've blasted around inside of the mirror with high pressure water jet, but they survived!

Might have to take the mirror off and flush him out - if I can be arsed!
If you do that let me know, I tried taking off the mirror and cover the
other day without success (and not wanting to break it!). I want to get
the little buggers out too !!!! [:mad:]

Pressure washer the buggers out - I've got one on
Jalopy that keeps me company on my way to work every morning... He'll
be getting evicted this weekend though! <shakes fist>
I tried that, literally stuck the end of the hose in the gap on full blast , but the little blighter survived and

grew another web within a few hours ... cheeky little bug - ger (see what i did there??? [:D] eh eh?)

There all over the tailgate as well, in the numberplate and around the wiper.

It makes the car look old [:mad:]

Used to get them in there a lot. I've found the best way to get rid is by thowing a small bit of leaf or similar to tempt them out onto the web, then brush them away[;)]

....and they ALWAYS fall for it [:D]

I kept finding cobwebs inside my car so I employed a toad from next doors pond to eat the offending anachrids.That cured it but he,s a messy bugger.Now the cobwebs are back so he,s getting lazy.Gonna go to the car now and sack him...slimey git [:D]
