Your typical webbing spider will need to be sprayed directly as spraying around the perimeter will not eradicate them.


Unfortunately spiders are not like other pest and will not die once they walk over the chemical barrier which is set in place once a treatment has been carried out.


The reason why spiders needs to be directly sprayed is that their feet or paws have tiny little velcro hairs which doesn’t absorbed the chemical which has been sprayed around the spiders habitat.

Ground dwelling spiders are also known as wanders and will make burrows in the ground and depending on what species of Ground dwelling spider that is lurking in your home or business some will have small silk trip lines to catch their prey.
