How to Get Rid of Spiders In the House
- Spray around all baseboards, door frames, window frames, under appliances, in closets and storage rooms and in areas where utilities enter into the structure.
- Place glue boards in cabinets, in the back of closets, under appliances and in storage areas such as attics or basements to help monitor your home or business for spiders and other pests.
Please note that concentrated insecticides do not offer an instant kill or knockdown. Instead they have a slower kill but they leave behind a long lasting residual to offer lasting control. If you need to supplement with a product to spray directly on spiders for a contact kill we would recommend you use a pyrethrin based aerosol spray. These sprays do not leave behind a residual but they will offer the instant knockdown that may be needed in some situations.
Knock down spider webs on the interior and exterior of your home or structure as soon as you notice them. This will help discourage spiders from invading those areas.
