Maybe there are insects that like the taste of the almonds and honey in the dispenser? When they arrive, the Daddy Longlegs will be there waiting for them .

Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

I think this one stepped into something. Now it is desperately waiting for someone to press for the soap.

smiley - laughsmiley - ok

I think I will call them Daddy Long Legs Spiders now, too - I don't know why my family call them 'water spiders'... The closest these get to water is hanging round in the bathroom or kitchen, but they are more often to be found under radiators where it is nice and warm and dry smiley - ok

Well, nine times out of ten, if I find a Daddy Longlegs, it's in my bathroom.

There are water striders as well

They probably have six legs, but I only see four in the photo. So they aren't spiders, but they have numerous species (1700), and I've seen them walking on water in trout ponds, thus furnishing food for game fish. smiley - biggrin

Effective: Nope
Enjoyable: Probably

You could go for undiluted cask strength though. That might be good enough.

There are some who would wonder why you are wasting a really good alcoholic drink just to sanitize your hands. And even if you did use it in this way, wouldn't your hands smell rather bad for a while? You'd need to at least rinse them in water to get the smell off.

That would probably have been the basic attitude in earlier centuries when plagues came through. Nevertheless, there were always some people who blamed minorities or witches
