How do I get rid of spiders in my house?
If you have a big enough crawl space under your house, you can set up cans of insect bombing spray to kill pesty insects before they have a chance to become overbearing in the home. We get ours at Family Dollar, but WalMart sells it too.
Peppermint oil on cotton balls. Set several around your house, the spiders don't like peppermint.
Clean away the old cobwebs and then spray Lemon Pledge around. Works in basement rafters, garage corners, even around outdoor lights where spiders tend to build webs. Just reapply if the webs start to reappear.
Most insects (including spiders) taste with their feet -- and spiders hate the taste of Lemon Pledge. Read this on the web years ago, and it works!

My friend has an enormous amount of spiders in her basement. It's gotten to the point where there are numerous spiders crawling on the walls and floors. She needs something that will not only be safe around kids and pets, but will also kill spiders on contact and not screw up the paint job on the walls.
What can I do to get rid of spiders in my house. I have all different kinds. I have fogged and sprayed but nothing seems to help. Any suggestions.
