Default spiders....recommendations for getting them off my patio?

Well, my new house backs up to a corn field, and we have some issues with bugs. Mainly spiders (tons of the f'ers ), but also some centipedes and beetles.

I'm trying to find something to spray around the house to keep these guys away. I've seen Ortho Home Defense and Bayer pest control, but wanted to know if any of these work? What's the best out there to keep spiders off my back patio so my wife will actually eat outside with me for once ? Something like those bought at a Home Depot or Lowes, or is there something better out there?

Spiders are pretty much impossible to eliminate, get rid of the white egg sacks where ever you see them.

Get some of the Ortho Bug B Gone Max and apply it every 3 months around the outside of your house. It works but some bugs will still find a way in so get some indoor bug spray as well. My house is bug free using this method, I also live near some corn fields so I know how you feel. Lots of field mice too.

Prestone or similar STARTING FLUID AND A BIC. Fries them puppies and the webs in a microsecond. I'm not bothered by most bugs BUT I HATE SPIDERS. Was bitten by one when I was 12 years old and again just 5 years ago, got pretty sick both times. I have no use for them and let them know in any uncertain terms.

If you want to get rid of the spiders, you have to get rid of the other bugs. The spiders will go where there is food

Spiders don't drag their bodies along the ground like insects do, so most pesticides won't affect them.

Fried spider
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaJump to: navigation, search

Fried spiders for sale at the market in SkuonFried spider is a regional delicacy in Cambodia. In the Cambodian town of Skuon, locals eat fried spiders as an everyday snack. Spiders are also available elsewhere in Cambodia in Phnom Penh for instance but Skuon, a market town on the highway 75 kilometres (47 mi) from the capital, is the centre of their popularity.[1] The spiders are bred in holes in the ground in villages north of Skuon, or foraged for in nearby forestland, and fried in oil. It is not clear how this practice started, but some have suggested that the population might have started eating spiders out of desperation during the years of Khmer Rouge rule, when food was in short supply.[2]

The spiders are a species of tarantula called "a-ping" in Khmer, and are about the size of a human palm.[3] The snacks cost about 300 riel each in 2002, or about US$ 0.08.[3] One travel book identifies them as Haplopelma albostriatum, also known as the Thai zebra tarantula, and notes that the same species' common name has been the "edible spider" for more than a hundred years. The popularity of the dish is, however, a recent phenomenon, starting perhaps as late as the 1990s.[4] The same book details a recipe: the spiders are tossed in a mixture of MSG, sugar, and salt; crushed garlic is fried in oil until fragrant, then the spiders are added and fried alongside the garlic until "the legs are almost completely stiff, by which time the contents of the abdomen are not so runny."[5]

The taste has been described as bland, "rather like a cross between chicken and cod",[1] with a contrast in texture from a crispy exterior to a soft centre. The legs contain little flesh, while the head and body have "a delicate white meat inside".[1] There are certainly those who might not enjoy the abdomen, however, as it contains a brown paste consisting of organs, possibly eggs, and excrement. Some call it a delicacy while others recommend not eating it.[1]

I use the same stuff and it works like a charm. No spiders or bugs in my house.

Clordane ! I actually have 1/3 of a bottle left. Lasts forever and kills everything bug wise. Also outlawed in the USA since the 70's I think.

The names I give them can't really be written on OT forum with out fear of admonishment. I'll send them to Pete and he can have afternoon drinks with them.
