What insecticide works best for brown recluse spiders (we live in TX)?

Which growth regulator do you recommend for brown recluse spiders? We also have 3 young kids and pets. We want to do both indoor and outdoor treatment.

Answer:

Cy-Kick CS would be a great choice for spider control indoors and outdoors. When sprayed, Cy-Kick CS creates a thick barrier of microcapsules that is impossible for insects to cross without being exposed to a lethal dose of insecticide. Exposed insects pick up microcapsules on their hairs and body triggering a rapid release of the active ingredient, resulting in death. Cy-Kick CS is virtually odorless and it dries clear making it ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications. There are no insect growth regulators on the market for spiders. We recommend that you read our article on Brown Reculse Spider Control to learn how to make your home less favorable to this pest.
