I just moved. (it was for the good, bigger house and 30x50 garage/shop).

Place is near wetlands, 50 years old, stone foundation, and borders up against a 15 acre corn field.

God damn, there are a BUNCH of big fucking bugs around here...found this spider tonight on my patio:


LOTS of spiders here and "cave crickets" (big fucking ugly ass cricket).

Anyone with some good remedies I can load into a garden sprayer and kill this shit?

carb or brake cleaner. Kills almost any bug, dead on contact.

...I'm not a fan of a cat...but there seems to be a slight rodent issue here too.

maybe that's not such a bad idea....though I'm thinking I might take odds on that fucking spider...

I've got to disagree with this based on personal experience. I tried killing a rather large spider with carb cleaner, I left for a broom and the fucker was gone... I used a shit load of spray too! We have hobos, black widows, and Wolf spiders among others. I'll pays hundreds to get rid of those things!!!

I'm having a spider issue in my garage now (though not as big as that fucker), so I'm looking forward to some more advice too...(and I have done the ether+lighter trick, but not looking to burn my shop down either!)

Brake cleaner kills everything. :)

We used a powdered product around here when we first moved in. Had a problem similar to yours. Have to ask and get back to this thread.

In Japan, we had huge spiders & insects. Having some equipment out in the field for years many of them would make homes in the equipment. One thing mandatory in the mobile tool arsenal, was a case of carb cleaner....just for the bugs.
I lived in Florida & had a bad infestation of black widows. It worked great. I now live in a tropical climate, guess what I deal with all the time? Guess what I use. Carb cleaner .

Unless it is ants. Then I use Combat ant killer( gel that comes in a needle type container). That shit is awesome.

Found it. Diatect. http://www.diatect.com/kill-spiders-ppc.php

Use it around the house and shop. Should keep the spiders and all other insects away from any area where you frequent. If they cross it......they're dead. Says for indoor use but we used it outside as well and it has worked great.
