    Spiders in the House

    Question:

    I want to get rid of spiders inside my house. What do you recommend I spray inside and outside with?

    Answer:

    I would recommend against spraying any insecticide inside your home. Instead, keep the corners vacuumed or swept so that spiders will know it's not a good place to hang around. You can put some sticky traps in closets or corners where pets or kids won't get into them. This will catch a lot of wandering spiders.
