Since waging war on these devils, the cobwebs issue has reduced a great deal.
Very few in the livingroom ......... one or two above me as I type ............ and gone from the bathroom. Not seen any in the kitchen for a few days. One or two in our bedroom. Spare bedroom is clear and hall too.

Only in a two-bedroom bungalow.

Although he's a very intelligent and over-athletic 20month Border Collie, he can't jump to our 8ft ceilings.

Please don't tempt him! :lol:
