Prep for Treatment
Before you begin treatment, you’ll want to have a clean home to work with. The two primary things you need to look for are spider webs and egg sacs. If you leave cobwebs behind, you may find that you perform a treatment only to encounter more spider invaders just days later. And if you miss an egg sac, dozens of young spiders may hatch and take over your home. Before you start treating for spiders, thoroughly vacuum your home, focusing on the corners and baseboards of each room.
In some cases, DIY treatments can work, but they’re not recommended for severe infestations or when dealing with venomous spiders. Over-the-counter spider sprays and glue traps can be purchased from most home improvement stores, but they can be dangerous to use and aren’t always guaranteed to work. The pesticides available to the everyday consumer are not as potent as professional products, and spider traps will only work if properly set up and maintained.
