Integrated Pest Management and Extermination of Spiders in your Environment.
Spiders in North American yards, forests, trees, and landscaping prey on insects and other organisms and in some cases, may prey on small birds and snakes. Many of the bugs or insects that spiders prey on are harmful to us, or to our grass, shrubs, trees, and gardens. Since spiders are beneficial to our environment we may be better served by doing our best to maintain them. We may not want some spiders in proximity to our family or visitors or businesses and homes and in safe places in our yards. There are two spiders, however, the black widows and the recluse that pose a clear danger and should be avoided and the risk of contact mitigated or eliminated.
Integrated pest management uses both pesticides that are labeled for spiders and habitat modification techniques that are highly effective at eliminating spiders, without killing them, within homes and businesses, and in reducing their populations in yards and landscaping to acceptable, manageable levels.
Residual pesticides, most frequently delivered in the form of toxic sprays, dusts, or granular baits, are toxic to humans and other living things, yet are not effective at eliminating spiders unless brought into direct contact with them. Spiders only hunt live prey and inert baits or dead organisms do not attract them. In addition, a spiders body mass is usually relatively high above the surfaces it travels on and only the tips of each leg touches the ground or the spiders web. This reduces the opportunity for residual pesticides to affect them.
Brown recluse spiders and black widow spiders are difficult to eradicate by using traditional pesticides alone as only a small percentage of these spiders are be treated directly through spraying or direct application. Most are are hidden and do not come into direct contact with pesticides. Also, residual pesticides are generally ineffective against them because they do not travel to the treated areas, and there is strong evidence that they have developed resistance to most pesticides. Brown recluse and black widow spiders that are hiding in corners or walls, or under furniture around and inside homes, garages, yards, sheds, dog-houses, barns and the like are often not reached by traditional pesticides.
Integrated pest management, including Habitat modification techniques facilitate the management of not only hidden and visible spiders but other harmful insects as well low toxicity pesticides and other non-toxic management methods.
Eliminate, seal, and cleanse voids in your home and in the landscaping of your yard to eliminate hidden black widow infestations in your home and landscape without having to fire a single shot of pesticide.
Reduce or eliminate clutter and tidying up areas where spiders can hide can eliminate an existing black widow or brown recluse spider infestation.
Regular cleansing solutions containing natural that are effective at dissolving or weakening spider webs
Clean up and remove debris accumulating in and around spider webs as well as other clutter that serves as a retreat or places for spiders to hide in
Use natural cleansers that include or you can add cedar, mint, eucalyptus, or other natural fragrances to soapy water. These aromatics help clean up residual smells left behind by animals and spiders make the cleaned area less attractive to organisms attracted to pheromones and scents. Soap-and-water solutions are used to clean are often not intended to kill spiders. However, a non-nurturing environment that is cleaned ans swept often does not attract spiders. Live spiders seen only rarely, will not set up housekeeping and
Directly applied soap-and-water solutions, used to clean up the areas where spiders reside, often kill the spiders they come into contact with as well as over-the-counter pesticides. Though not intentionally used as anything more than cleansers, they do much more than that, yet they add no toxic substances to the air, and leave no residual toxic substances behind.
Ordinary soap-and-water solution can be lethal to spiders because their respiratory system is vulnerable to water-based solutions that have low surface tensions. Plain water alone is not necessarily threatenting a spider as some spiders can live underwater for extremely long periods of time. However, adding a wetting or sudsing agent, such as a liquid soap, produces a solution that can kill spiders on contact. All three of a spiders respiratory organs: skin, lungs, and tubular tracheae are compromised when a wetting or sudsing solution is sprayed directly on the spider.
Many, if not most, yard spiders are diurnal (day-active) feeders (though recluse spiders, and many orbweavers are nocturnal, i.e., night-active); after the sun goes down insect activity tapers off and many diurnal spiders rest, especially the wandering hunters and jumpers that rely on vision to locate prey.
The best way to produce an environment with fewer spiders in it.
Ordinary outside lighting transmits short wavelength illumination in the blue-ultraviolet spectrum that attracts insects. This, in turn, attracts any spiders in the area including hunters and jumpers, during the dark hours, because they have the opportunity to feed as long as the lights are on. Wolf spider populations increase around such lights, where they have the opportunity to congregate in cracks and crevices waiting for a chance to jump an insect that alights nearby. We advise that you use bug lights for exterior lighting and screen your windows if you do not enjoy orb weavers and other spiders attracted to the light.
