Will Demon WP kill tarantulas?
I have tarantulas in my yard and in the wash room. Will this product kill them?
If the tarantulas are sprayed directly with the Demon WP or come in direct contact with the treated area, they will, given enough time, die. Demon WP does not offer an immediate knockdown, but instead a long residual. Spiders in general are harder to kill than other insects because their bodies are higher off the ground and they do not groom their legs(the part of them that actually comes into contact with the insecticide) and therefore take longer to receive a lethal dose of the insecticide. Spraying Demon 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.
