  1. i had a few in my house.i cleaned alot and thought i cleaned everwhere.but then i cleaned more and found webs behind radiaters.on the front of house above doors windows etc.they get in corners alot.since then not seen so many.and i sprayed white vinegar that seems to work aswell in corners.

  2. NO! THEY MUST DIE! 1/2 White vinegar and 1/2 or less Dawn liquid soap KILLS them! No water in it. Just spray them. Great for other bugs like crickets, ants, roaches! Instant gratification, cheap but smells… Oh the best to clean tubs, toilets instead of bleach too!

  3. anyone do any experiments with this? does this actually work? i usually use Home Defense once a year around my baseboards .. im wondering if this would do just as good?

  4. I don't mind spiders. Not afraid of them I have a pet tarantula. but im under siege by brown recluse cock suckers!. Killed 3 today , went hunting them around my house with an RPG7. fuckers trying to move in on my turf. I declared war. So I soaked the walls corners and everything with peppermint oil to keep them out. Next step is gasoline some styrofoam a bottle of vodka a match and some metal music.
    Wish me luck

  5. While going to the bathroom at home, I felt like something was crawling on me and sure enough it was a little black spider…it happened 4 more times while sitting on the toilet in the last few days and I have come across at least 6 more of them in the bathroom and house. I looked it up and they are called Ground Spiders which apparently don’t use a web but instead they hunt for their prey mostly at night. I can’t figure out where they are coming from. They are supposedly non-venomous but can bite and now I constantly feel like I have something crawling on my skin. I can’t use a toxic spider spray because I have indoor cats. I hope this works to at least keep them out of the bathroom while I pee..
    UGH!!
