  • I just got an ultrasonic plug in thing that puts out ultra sonic waves that apparently drive spiders, ants, and mice crazy. You put them on the outside walls of your home. To try and make a wall so they won't come in. Its worked so far. Its the only thing that i could find that didn't have some poison in it. Oh, i tried the sticky traps last year, its just a piece of paper you put down thats sticky on one side. I only caught a few though. Good luck- i hate the brown spiders, you can see the little hairs on they're legs ewwwww. Gives me the heebie jeebies just thinking about it.

  • they are eating well and multiplying in your house. you need to get rid of their food source. lighting in and around your house at night attracts bugs and spiders eat those bugs. I would bet if you cut off your lighting at night it would reduce what they are able to eat.
