General Pest Control
Fortunantly my problem is not with mice, rats or squirels. Mine is a simpler issue-I think. How do I control spiders? I have seen a number of them latley in my basement and in other areas of my house. What can I do to get rid of these guys. I need solutions that are kid and pet safe. Thanks!

Try Demon WP, it has about a 2 or 3 month residual. I get mine from the local feed store, but will start ordering from It is much cheaper.

Spiders eat other bugs so make sure you want to get rid of them in areas like basements. There are bug/spider vacuums, kind of like dust busters. And there is always catch and release. Or call your local University and ask if their entomology department wants to come help. You can get help cleaning out the bugs and your kids can get a science lesson all in one.
