  • Be sure to cover things and put all food etc away. Leave the house and let it air out after. Be especially careful with small children.

  • AIR YOUR HOUSE BEFORE YOU REALLY RETURN, BECAUSE YOU DONT WANT TO BE INHAILING THAT

  • make sure everything is covered...afterwards id wash everything out and down like walls and floors. make sure you air the house out for at least a day.

  • Actually, bombing may not be the solution because spiders aren't insects; exterminators recommend using glue traps, a special spider killing dust, and a class of bug killers called pyrethroids.

    However, bombing the house WILL get rid of the bugs the spiders are trying to trap so it won't be a wasted effort. Good luck with this!
