Trap Spiders With Flat Glue Boards

You can use the Tomcat flat glue boards to capture spiders and other insects in the home. I place them under beds and around base boards. You will be surprised what you trap.


My sister got bit by a recluse spider and almost lost her leg. I feel safer with them around, to catch the unwanted creatures.

Eggz, I believe those glue boards D-Con makes to catch mice might work. They're essentially squares of heavy-gauge smooth paper which are coated with a very strong glue. Think fly paper laid flat.

Fancy2253, this sounds like a doable plan, as long as you don't have small pets or children, or blind chicks like me in the house! Knowing me, I'd get glued to the paper and ruin it, no matter where it was stashed. :P

We keep these in our garage and have gotten lots of spiders, crickets, etc.
