Get rid of the spiders that are already inside first

Spiders will always find a way inside no matter what you do to keep them out. However, there is a difference between having a few spiders in your house, and being infested. You shouldn't have to worry about being bitten by a spider in your own home. My house backs up to a wooded area, so I am familiar with battling spiders. After we had been in our house for a couple of months, I found the biggest spider I had ever seen living - temporarily - in my basement. This spurred me into action, and I have found a relatively flawless and inexpensive way to treat spider problems.

My method starts by making sure your house is clean and picked up. You don't want to give the spiders too many places to hide. Pick up clothes, vacuum corners, clean out the basement, shake out rugs, and just give the whole house a once over. This will help with the next step, bombing, by allowing the spray to reach more places that spiders may be hiding. Before bombing the house, though, you will want to make sure no spiders creep back in between the processes of ridding the inside of the house and ridding the outside.

This you will do by sealing off possible points of entry with spider repellant.

Once you've cleaned the clocks of all the spiders in your house, you will want to stay on a bi-annual to quarterly maintenance schedule to insure you remain spider-free.
