    I just had a spider of some kind scurry into the middle of my bedroom. I went to the other room to grab a spider smashing shoe, and of course, the friggin troll disappeared.

    I then see it later scurry under my utility closet door.

    Don't you hate it when creepy crawlies do that?

    Ps. I'm looking for the best bug spray known to man, with the purpose of spraying under a door to keep them from coming through.

    Basically, the "utility closet" also leads to a crawlspace, and that's where they keep coming in from.

    My understanding is there's such a thing as a "bug spray pee line" that can last a long time, is that true?

    Make sure you don't have other bugs in your house...

    spiders dont stay where there's nothing to eat.

    God created the spiders too, so I doubt he's going to damn them.

    spiders don't clean their feet like roaches do, so the "line in the sand" approach might not work.

    First, develop stress and anxiety, because it IS a SPIDER!!!

    Then, kill all those weeds, also.

    Lastly, tuck your Polo shirt into your khaki shorts.

    All spiders are damn spiders every damn one of them.

    Since it's a crawl space you want to treat I would call a professional exterminator. They may have a can of something he can sell you without having to make a house call that won't be harmful to you and yours.

    Try going hunting pre dawn and run into a huge web along the trail. You pause after slapping your face at least 50 times...only to walk 100 yards and feel something crawling on your neck.

    Bayer Suspend. Best product made for spiders. You have to get it somewhere that sells professional pest control products.

    I had black widows in a new construction home.

    What's wrong with spiders? They make great pets....

    I remember biking on trails in the woods in the morning and getting covered in webs and small spiders. Some people are helpless.

    A big hairy 2" one built a funnel nest/web on my daughter's windowsill last year. She fed it bugs.

    I had brown widows in the screened in patio on a new construction home last year. I lost count at more than 70 of them. Yes, that is seven-zero. Went out hunting them every couple days for 3 weeks to finally get rid of all of them. The brown ones are just as dangerous as the black ones, and look just as creepy.

    This is why it is important to always carry your glock. Even at home. Home invasions come in many forms.

    j/k. maybe

    i can do ya one better than that. try taking a ride on a motorcycle and at 80mph on the freeway see some sort of 8 legged death dealer suddenly appear in your peripheral vision inside your fully enclosed helmet.

    i'm not afraid of spiders, but that one got my blood pumping a bit.

    Did you know you swallow a couple spiders a year when you're asleep? They just drop down from the ceiling and get inhaled. Spider its whats for the midnight snack.
