Best spray insecticide to control Brown Recluse spiders in the home?
I wish to control them in the basement as well as the living area. I've been looking at Demon WP, Suspend SC and Demand CS. I'm wanting something that is residual so I don't have to spray them directly to control them. Would one of these products be better than the other or is there a better choice that I've not listed? Thank you.
Even though Brown Recluse spiders are very scary to have in your house they are no harder to get rid of than any other spider. The hardest part of getting rid of the brown recluse is finding them since they like to remain hidden. Cyper WP would be a great choice for indoor and outdoor spider control. The active ingredient in Cyper WP is cypermethrin, which is known to be one of the top choices for spider control. Spraying Cyper WP will also help to get rid of the insects that spiders feed on and that will help to stop new spiders from moving in. Indoors, spray around all baseboards, door frames, window frames, under appliances, in closets and storage rooms and in areas where utilities enter into the structure. Outdoors you should spray around the bottom of the foundation, on the ground adjacent to the foundation, door frames, window frames and places where the utilities enter into the structure. We have included Cyper in our spider control kit, which also contains glue boards to help monitor the infestation (and help catch the spiders too).
