Q&A Home

Danny writes,

We live on a lake and are covered up with spiders all over the house. What can I use to kill the spiders?

I plan to use cobweb eliminator once I clean them all off the house but I also want to kill them. What is your best spider killing product? The stuff the exterminator uses doesn't seem to affect the spiders at all.


We recommend Cyper WP. Cyper WP contains the active ingredient cypermethrin which is known to eliminate spiders better than most other products on the market. We offer the Cyper WP in our Spider Control Kit which alos comes with Cobweb Eliminator and glue boards to help monitor the spiders in problem areas. If you literally live on the lake, you must be very careful not to get any insecticide into the water as any products that will kill insects is likely to kill aquatic life as well. Essentria IC3 would be a great product to apply to areas close to the lake.
