How to get rid of spiders at home

Spiders become a common sight during the colder months. They look for dry warm places to seek shelter and breed. When one or two make their way inside, it can be hard to tell if they are temporary visitors or have set up a cozy home at your place.

Here are 3 tips for finding spiders and avoiding co-habitation in your home or workplace. 
1)  Check your roof cavity. This is favourite haunt for many spiders who like dark, dry places and access your roof cavity through recessed lights in the ceiling. A great tip for keeping your roof cavity insect free, is to deploy a can or two of Ecomist Insect Grenade in your roof space early Autumn. It's a single application product designed for fast and effective relief from insect invasions. 

2) Be sure to check under furniture, and behind cabinets as spiders look for dark spaces to reside. Use the Ecomist Dispenser with Ecomist Insect Killer, which is safe to use around people, pets and food, throuout the autumn and winter. Set the dispenser to medium through the winter months to ensure a regular amount of spray will deter and kill insects residing indoors. 

3) Look both inside and out for holes or crevices that spiders or other crawlies may venture into. Where possible, seal these holes and crevices to keep crawlies moving on. 

Spray all the gates insect can use to get into your home (holes or crevices, door ways, windows, air ventilation covers, etc.) with Ecomist Sniper - a residual spray for interior use. The dried spray acts as an invisible barrier to crawling insects and lasts for up to 3 months - it kills crawling insects when they come into contact with it. Sniper can also be used to spray directly on to insects for a fast knockdown effect.

Ecomist’s Insect Grenade is a very effective product which instantly destroys insects and eggs inside your home or workplace.  It even deals to those residing in your rugs and carpets! Suitable for combatting spiders, fleas, fliesand many other insects, the can deploys in less than 2 minutes.
