Spider Control

Has anyone ever sprayed the inside and outside for spiders? If so, what do you use? We keep our TT next to a barn in the country, and it gets covered by them, and every time we are out in it, there are usually 1 or 2 inside as well. I worry about spraying, because I don't want to ruin the paint on the aluminum siding. Yet I don't want them all over the camper.

Thanks for any help.

Every once in awhile we toss in a couple of bug bombs from Wal Mart. That seems to take care of most of the bugs.

Have you tried mothballs...I put 4-6 mothballs in old prescription bottles that I've drilled holes in and place them in bays, back of frig, and on top of each tire.

We keep them as pets. Good insect control.
A few years ago we picked up some spiders and by the time we realize they were there we had about 10-12. Since they were doing no harm we caught as many as we could and let them free. As I write this we think we have got rid of all of them as now the little fruit flies are back.

Demon leaves a residue that kills until it gets washed off. Not sure if it can be used inside, but it is good stuff! Also the dollar store sells 100% boric acid for $2.00 that kills roaches, ants etc. It is a powder form and can be used inside.

Hedgeapples will keep spiders away, but may draw mice. I keep hedgeapples in my garage and basement to keep the spiders away and it works.

ORTHO Home Defense. I've never looked upon black widows as pets. As Garfield said when told that most spiders are harmless his reply was "Especially the dead ones".

Found this at local hardware/feed store. Seems effective.
Ant Problem? Terro = Ant Control Solutions
They also had spider traps, prebaited glue tents.. Now those either don't do much or the spray had killed all the spiders....(Big H Spider Traps...)

Thanks for all of the ideas. We were out this last weekend, and they were very bad. Inside and out. I am going to bomb the inside as soon as I can and I think a 5gal bucket of home defense might be on my list also. They were nasty!!!

Ps. The little bug zapper tennis racket thing works great. But that had to be done for each individual bug. With as many as we had, the kids were very busy. We had our own fireworks.

Where were you camping that had so many spiders.
Many times RVs will have 1 or 2 spiders and you may never see them and they are great for keeping other insects away.

We were in Door County, WI. We had at least 15 inside and alot more outside. We store our camper outside in the country also, and I know that is where alot of them attach to it.
