PESTICIDE TREATMENT:
Click on product links for description, pricing and availability in certain states.

  1. Treat the perimeter of the building with a professional residual pesticide such as Cynoff WP, Demon WP or 
    Suspend SC
    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, centipedes, millipedes 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.
  2. 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 Air Devil to kill visible spiders.
  3. 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.
  4. For heavy infestations in attics and crawlspaces, power dusting with Ficam D or Drione Dust would be best.

NON-CHEMICAL CONTROL:

  1. Eliminate or shield outdoor lights or bright indoor lights that attract the spiders’ insect food source.
  2. Trim weeds around the building foundation and remove debris to discourage insects and spiders from living next to a structure.
  3. Seal openings and install screens and door sweeps to prevent spiders (as well as other unwanted pests) from moving indoors.
  4. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove webs, spiders and their egg sacs.
