EcoLogic Home insect Control uses lemongrass oil as the active ingredient. I use it at the house around the perimeter, roof over hangs and in the garage. So far no need to use it in the coach. So Cal and So Oregon, we have plenty of BW's.

I'd give it a shot prior to detonating Raid or carb cleaner inside the MH. Be sure to air it out if you go with the nuclear option. And make certain that are no sources of ignition, although that would take care of the spider problem.

Black Widows clean their web, so leave the web alone and spray a bit of any insecticide of your choice on the web .
Take a few strands of hair from your wife's hair brush if available and lay them on the web at different spots if accessible ? Then spray the web , does have to soak to dripping but wet.
Try to preferably use an indoor type insecticide , they usually won't have a harsh odor and won't stain if properly used...

Apparently I kill black widows by sitting on them. At least that's what my parents said I did when I was about 2 years old, and yes it did bite me as well.

I bought our last MH used out of Florida. Drove it home to PA & parked in our driveway. Soon after that I went out after dark to check something on the rig. Happened to sweep the flashlight beam under the rig and a web strand from rig to ground caught my eye. Started looking more carefully...lots of random strands like that.

Was a boy scout in CA...something flipped a flag...random web strands. Hmmm. Found a spider, sure enough, black widow. Killed that one and started working my way around, looking for more. Killed a dozen that night, and another dozen or so over the next couple of nights. Never saw any inside the rig, and never had any trouble after that. Well, a small ant colony once, but a Terro liquid blister took care of them...
