Had our home sprayed for Spiders and wasps. Haven't seen one since. They were literally falling from the house. These guys are awesome.

Others have used them and it pretty much worked all year! $95 if insects return within six weeks reapplication is free. Versus $200 initally and $40 every month when they return. If it is wasps the dust to track where they are going.

Wonder if it would work on boats?

What about ants? I have those huge black ants at my house. I've throw out the traps that are suppose to bring the food back to the nest and kill them all.....but there still around.

Funny you should mention that - I noticed the wasps near the front porch in the last 2 days and son of a gun if one didn't get in the front door and was in Danielle's bedroom.

I am so afraid to try to kill one of those suckers - if you miss 'em...

I heard the stuff on the counter is only strong enough to rid your lawn of the hatched eggs...thats why they say apply in spring...

Is this true????

In boats, I found out that if you hide dryer sheets through out the boat it will keep the spiders out of the cabin!

Remember that the enviroment can only handle so many pesticides.....insects can be a pain, but if we keep killing them, it eventually will end up moving up the food chain.

Not to sound like a tree huggin fool.....but there are times when it is warranted and certainly more times when it is not. Heck I dont even like to use weed killer or fertilizer on my lawn.....things live there.

Dryer sheets sound like a perfect alternative.

My dad is out there spraying things down with some Ortho product weekly in the summertime. I think he's rather do that than have somebody come out and take care of it. Can't teach an old Italian man new ways.

At the condo, I have a couple of those Sunbeam electronic pest repellers. It used to be in the basement, until Girlie called me crying about the tarantuala in her room. So I moved it up to the master bedroom and haven't seen any spiders in there since. Once again, friendly pest control.

I spray our house myself. I went to Home Depot, looked at the bug chart and bought the appropriate spray. It is a huge container I lug around with an attached hose and sprayer. It claims it is good for inside and outside.

I sprayed all of the windows inside tracts and outside borders along with my front porch. I haven't seen any mites (from the sod we had laid) or any tarantulas.....Last year I kid you not I had one tarantuala coming through my front door a day at least! Aaaggggghhhh!!!!!!

I will never forget when I found the first one in my hallway and I knew Jeff was on his way home from school. I callled him to ask him where he was when he would be home and to drive faster. I stayed on the phone with him the whole time and kept my eye on that tarantula the whole time because I didn't want to lose site of it and I refused to kill something that BIG! Ew.
