  • a professional if you can afford it and congratulations....look, they get anywhere...My son spotted one on the back of our car door...when I opened it up to put our groceries in, he saw it in the I got a stick and killed it...imagine my call a professional to treat your house for 3 months at a time...good luck....

  • I would suggest contacting a professional and get their input... you will most likely have to have regular spraying done....
    Congrats! on the house and good luck with the spiders...

  • I would get professional pest control. They will come out on a regular basis, do inspections and spray. Call around for quotes and ask people who they use and if they recommend them. We have a very good pest control company and it's not one of the 'name brand' companies. They charge less than half the price of the big companies and do a great job.

    Congrats on the new house!
