I want to spray for spiders around our house and yard using the garden hose attachment.
I have had a professional come and they use a long hose and sprayer. They spray the whole house, deck, garage, wooden swing set and our wooden seat swing. I want to do this myself as needed. What product should I use for spiders that I can use with a garden hose for large and tall areas? I was looking at cypermethrin, but it says its for cracks and crevices spot treatment.
We do have a liquid formulation of cypermethrin called Cyper TC that should fit your needs very well. Since this is an emulsifiable concentrate, it may cause staining to old vinyl siding so you may want to test a small area if this is an issue for you. If staining is a problem then you could use water based, non staining Talstar P as an alternative. Both products should work just fine in a hose end sprayer.
***Note: We do NOT recommend spraying swing sets or swings of any sort with any type of insecticides. Spraying around the perimeter of the play set area should be sufficient.****
