    Take them outside and give them a bast from the hosepipe to remove general dust and muck and unwanted guests.  Leave in the sun to dry then rub down if necessary and treat with teak oil.

    Not without a picture and maybe not even then.  All sorts of wee critters shelter in sheds for winter but disappear in the warmth and sunlight.

    Hello. A 'swarm' of tiny creatures has appeared on the door to the fuse box outside. They are really small and look golden and my keen eyed neighbours sid they looked like spiders and had a small balack dot on their bums. Any ideas? Don't want to hurt them...but..

    They’ll soon disperse ... most of them will provide food for hungry baby robins and bluetits  :)
