PESTICIDE TREATMENT:Click on product links for
description, pricing and availability in certain states.
- Treat the perimeter of the building with a professional residual pesticide
such as Cynoff WP, Demon
at maximum strength. Regular or maintenance strength is fine for
preventative spraying but maximum strength or clean-out rats are necessary
for tough pests such as spiders, scorpions,
and carpenter bees.
We do not
suggest trying to control spiders or scorpions with the use of pesticides purchased in
grocery stores, hardware stores or big home supply stores. They rarely work!
As you can see, all of the suggested pesticides are professional wettable powder
formulations. These products not only give you a super long residual kill with no odor,
they also provide large particles on sprayed surfaces. This will give you the
"knockdown" that you need to eliminate and control spiders.
- Indoors, you may also spray with Cynoff WP, Demon
WP or Suspend SC
in areas where spiders enter, hide or hunt for food. These
areas may include baseboards, window sills, closets or around plumbing lines. For heavy
infestations, you also need to use a contact aerosol such as Pyrethrin Spray or
Devil to kill visible spiders.
- In areas where spiders are heavy web builders, Cobweb Eliminator should be used two to three
times per year indoors and on a quarterly basis outdoors. This will help eliminate
existing webs and keep spiders from re-building more unsightly webs around windows,
lights, in corners or other areas of your home.
- For heavy infestations in attics and crawlspaces, power dusting with Ficam D or Drione Dust
would be best.
- Eliminate or shield outdoor lights or bright indoor lights that attract the
spiders insect food source.
- Trim weeds around the building foundation and remove debris to discourage
insects and spiders from living next to a structure.
- Seal openings and install screens and door sweeps to prevent spiders (as
well as other unwanted pests) from moving indoors.
- Use a vacuum cleaner to remove webs, spiders and their egg sacs.
