Spiders are challenging pests to manage because of the diversity of spider species, habitats and behaviors. When controlling spiders, keep these integrated pest management (IPM) concepts in mind:

Manage outside lighting to reduce attraction to the structure.

Remove spider webs before applying any product.

Use aerosol products to treat spider egg sacs.

Use an appropriately labeled microencapsulated pyrethroid insecticide for residual control.
