I thought I was winning the war on spiders. However, they’re starting to come back, so it’s time to crank it up a notch.
It’s time for the Intimidation Method of Pest Control. There are two steps:
1. Kill the pest (e.g., the spider);
2. Throw the pest’s body outside where the other spiders can see it, as a warning of what will happen to them if they come in my house.
I’ll admit, it sounds kind of terrorist. But I’m thinking it might be effective. I’ll let you know how it works.
I’ve heard the Best way is to Eat a victim ! there are spying eyes everywhere…& word will get around. But don’t try the poisonous variety.
As a former window cleaner, I can tell you that 50% of your spider “infestation” is due to dirty window “tracts” and such… they thrive in the “unkempt” areas of your home… a spring cleaning will effectively rid you of 50% of your spider problem =)
I’ll send some palmetto bugs. The spiders will run when they see the size of these FL rascals.
I say throw them off the track and try to befriend them. Read “Charlotte’s Web” out loud to them and then ask to discuss. That’ll freak ’em out and send them packing (assuming they have suitcases…) XO
