How can I get rid of spiders?

There really small. In the past 3 days I've seen 4 of them. What's bringing them in the house and how do I get rid of them? I don't remember seeing them before.

  • We have wolf spiders, they are huge and gross looking. Maybe you could call Orkin or something, I have a spider smooshing shoe. yep a shoe that is dedicated to killing bugs. Do they make Raid for spiders? if so, you could spray that around and I think flea bombs kill them too

  • My only problem with chemicals is using them around the kids. They are so small you don't see them at first. I have one of those electronic pest controllers plugged in and (knock on wood) have never seen anything other than ants after a huge rain. But even that stopped after we fixed the window.

  • I had our house exterminated for ants last year and I ask them about the spiders... he said the best way to get rid of them is to vacuum the egg sacks. The little black ones I found come around this time of year. They are along the base boards and I hate them too!!!!!

  • there are these things that you plug into the wall that are supposed to repel not only spiders but mice and other all kinds of bugs. I'm not sure what they're call but my sil swears by them and i really want to get some myself.

  • I know it's fall & I'm not sure till what season they are available, but if you can get some of those green bumpy balls that grow on trees next to the road, they help eliminate spiders. We call them monkey balls. We gather some up & put them under the couch, and in cubbyholes everywhere. Don't know how they work... but they do!
