Spider Killer

How to keep Spiders away from your home

Spiders become a common sight during the colder months. They look for dry warm places to seek shelter and breed. When one or two make their way inside, it can be hard to tell if they are temporary visitors or have set up a cosy home. 

Here are 3 tips for getting rid of spiders in your home 

  1. Clear infestations instantly. Check your roof cavity - this is favourite haunt for many spiders who like dark, dry places and access your roof through recessed lights in the ceiling. A great tip for keeping your roof cavity insect free, is to deploy a can or two of Ecomist Insect Grenade in your roof space. It's a single application product designed for fast and effective relief from insect invasions. 
  2. Check their hiding places. Be sure to check under furniture, and behind cabinets. Use the Ecomist Dispenser with Ecomist Insect Killer, which is safe to use around people, pets and food. Insect Killer will flush insects out of their hiding places, repel and kill them. Set the dispenser to medium to ensure a regular amount of spray will deter and kill insects residing indoors. The Ecomist Insect Killer uses natural pyrethrins derived from the Chrysanthemum Daisy, sourced from Tasmania and East Africa and manufactured in New Zealand. 
  3. Spray all exterior access points. Look inside and out for holes or crevices that spiders or other crawlies may venture into. Where possible, seal these holes and crevices. Spray all the areas spiders use to get into your home (holes or crevices, doorways, windows, air ventilation covers, etc.) with Ecomist Sniper - a residual spray for interior or semi-enclosed outdoor areas. The dried spray acts as an invisible barrier to crawling insects and lasts for up to 3 months - it will kill spiders when they come into contact with it. Sniper can also be used to spray directly on to insects for a fast knockdown effect.
