MythDragon: Just let loose 40 of these

That should cure your spider problem.

I saw those on Sliders on Netflix. Eat through flesh and walls. They wiped out North and South America.

rico567: Bruxellensis: Macinfarker: Bruxellensis: It's not a recluse, but a common "house spider." GIS for "house spider" and you'll see multiple angles of this species. I kill about 10 of them every year in my basement. I don't know if they're poisonous or not.

No more so than mosquitoes in most cases. The thing about spiders, though: if you have spiders, that means they have a food source you haven't yet seen. Spiders generally do not stick around unless something is feeding them. That's why the old wives tale about spiders being good house pets really is not true. Not having spiders is generally a good sign.

In your case, you may want to have your basement checked for fleas, and your walls/attic for wasp/hornet nests. If you don't have any other visible bug population, that's a good thing to check.

Oh no, I'm well aware of what they're eating, and I've been making it my summer mission to rid my house of all of those pests. I've been having a particularly tough time with earwigs this year.

Then I used this:

and everything died all around the house. It didn't take long before I wasn't seeing anything in my house, and there was a perimeter of dead earwigs, spiders, caterpillars, moths, wasps, ants, and centipedes surrounding my house. This stuff WORKS.

/read the warning label before use. it's poisonous to humans as well.

Tempo is beta-cyfluthrin. Demon and Cynoff are 40% cypermethrin (these are variants of a class of synthetic pyrethrins, derivative of oranganic insecticide found in certain flowers). Demon and Cynoff are everything Tempo is but less expensive, and when used correctly, not dangerous to humans or pets. Cynoff (what I use) is cheaper than Demon. You may or may not be able to get some of this stuff in certain states.

Hey thanks for the tip!
