CANNIBAL ladybirds which carry a sexually transmitted infection are wreaking havoc across the country. The Harlequin ladybird, also known as the Halloween Ladybug, carries a fungal STI that infects other insects, has an unpleasant stink and stains furniture. They eat other ladybirds and have even been known to bite people. The invasion comes after seven schools in East London were shut due to an infestation of poisonous false widow spiders. Experts say the hot summer has boosted Harlequin bug numbers. They fly in from Asia and North America on mild autumn winds. Since first being spotted in Britain 14 years ago, the Harlequin is now the second most common species. It has sparked fears for native seven-spot and two-spot ladybirds. The latter’s numbers have halved since 2004. Swarms of the foreign bugs have been reported in Birmingham, Manchester, Norfolk, Loughborough and Gloucester.

THE Longjawed Orbweaver is a type of spider that spins spectacular and eerie webs. One major sub-species, the Tetragnatha, is also known as the stretch spider because of its creepy long legs. Here's all you need to know about the bug. What are Longjawed Orbweavers? They are found all over the world although most thrive in warmer climates in the tropics and subtropics. They are commonly called stretch spiders because of their eerier elongated body form. When disturbed they will stretch their front legs forward — while they jut their other six legs backwards. This allows them to hide on blades of grass or similar elongated pieces of foliage like twigs and leaves. They are so light and nimble that they are able to run over water and chose the water's edge as their preferred habitat. The name Tetragnatha is derived from Greek, tetra — a numerical prefix referring to four and gnatha meaning "jaw". One of the biggest and most common species is T. extensa.
