Thanks

What sort of spiders ? If daddy long legs, anything will do but personally Id probably leave them - theyre a good indicator if you have whitetails as the white tails love having DLL's for food. If all the DLL are gone, then you know to watch out.... :) (Gee, makes it sound like a Windows virus)

Ripcord.  Get it from any good hardware store.  Same stuff the pro's use (so I am told).  I spray our house every spring, all insects disappear and don't come back for at least 6 months.

Miss Muffet's Revenge...available from Wet n Forget.

Dissolves the spiderwebs and gets rid of the spiders for a few months at a time.

I use it in spring time and it works.

I live next to the bush and we have a lot of spiders around our place...but only over winter when the spider spray has worn off and the weather is too wet for me to re-treat the house.

The story about white-tails is right...our Daddy-Longlegs population dwindled rapidly this winter...turned out the White Tails had moved in...hence I am spraying the house this weekend.

+1 for Ripcord

Usual hardware stores sell it as an emulsion, but horticultural shops sell it in a more expensive liquid in a  tin which works out much cheaper per application.

Shake it up, mix with water in your sprayer, spray around doors and windows and eaves and other spider hangouts. Tada!
I did it a fortnite ago at my place. Haven't had any of the bastard cockroaches sneaking in from the punga fence yet.

Important.Evacuate premises to be sprayed. The premises may be re-occupied as soon as spray applications are dry. Before spraying remove pets and cover or remove fish tanks and bird cages. Do NOT spray on or allow spray to land on personal contact items e.g. clothing, footwear, towels or bedding.

Handling.This product must be under the personal control of an APPROVED HANDLER when applied in a wide dispersive manner or used by a commercial contractor.

Personal Protection. When mixing and preparing spray, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist, a washable hat, suitable gloves, and goggles or a face shield.

So when you apply it, do you get everyone out of the house for a few hours? Also do you wear a space suit to mix and spray?

I use a garden sprayer, and wear a mask and glasses, but never really had an issue. Try to create a barrier around the building and windows.
