When did the bed spiders come to the UK?
The bed spider has been found in England and Wales for the first time in more than a decade.
The discovery, by researchers from the University of Birmingham, comes as more than 50 new species of bed spiders are discovered each year in the UK.
Bed spiders, also known as bed bugs, are known for their aggressive behaviour and have been recorded attacking people and pets, as well as humans.
It is not known how many species are known to live in the country.
Scientists from the Department of Entomology at the University said they were hoping to find a bed spider that would fit into their research programme.
“Bed bugs are usually found in damp places, but in this study we found a bed insect which was also found in wet places,” Dr Caroline Houghton, from the department said.
“We’re hopeful that the bed bug will be found to be in the same genus as the one that we found.”
The fact that it was found in a damp environment suggests that it may be very common, as bedbugs are often found in the damp environment, and it was very hard to get ahold of one in this country.
“Dr Houghon said it was likely that the discovery was linked to an earlier discovery of the species in the US.”
This particular bed bug was found to occur in a region in Northern New South Wales,” she said.
The research team was unable to identify a cause for the bed spider’s unusual appearance, but it did not have any obvious symptoms.
Dr Haughton said she hoped the discovery would lead to better understanding of the nature of the bed bugs.”
It’s interesting to see a species that was not previously found in New Zealand or Australia being found in this way, as it suggests there may be other types of bed bugs in New England,” she added.”
And we can’t rule out that it could be a new species.
