Hi can anyone shed light on the best way to control spiders for as long as possible (hoping for 12 months) in a non living space ie garage.

I found this - any good?

PS what about living spaces?

I use 'Ripcord Plus' for spider/bug control in my workshop and also in the house ceiling areas. Seems to work for at least 12 months.

I usually buy the concentrate version and mix it in a small garden sprayer.

Whitetails are supposed to be pretty good at controlling other spiders. I always see the presence of spiders as a reassuring sign.

+ 1 for Ripcord or there is a kiwi brand called "no bugs" or something along those lines that I have found does just as good for about 1/2 the price.  Ripcord is what the pros use I believe.

joker97: Is this the right ripcord?


Yip.  

This is the other one I now use, way cheaper as it makes 12 litres against Ripcords 5 litres for the same price.

I take it the same problem you asked about in 2014 wasn't sufficiently resolved?

Wow you have very good memory! In tech 6 months is enough to be outdated ... Was thinking maybe spider tech might have changed too!
I believe I was recommended a handheld squeezing bottle that emptied fast after asking then. 5-12L this time is way better!
