Found 27th Sep 2014
For those of you like myself who are currently plagued by giant house spiders due to the mild summer, this stuff is the business!

Spray around doors, windows & ceiling joists. Once dry it is harmless to pets & children, lasts for months & genuinely kills on contact - You can even use it outside!

It's still fairly creepy to discover dead spiders everywhere, but much better than finding live ones the size of my hand (seriously)!

3 tins will do an entire house & being spider free (and ant, cockroach, woodlouse, earwig & silverfish for that matter) for around a tenner can only be a good thing!

OOS online but available in store.

I will be getting some pronto! Cheers

It contains deltamethrin which is a synthetic pyrethroid. It's very debatable that it is safe for pets and children, as with all pesticides.

Not really worth it to get rid of a few spiders in my opinion. Would rather use a glass and a piece of cardboard. Don't have to touch their corpses then either.

Thank u so much, didn't even know these sort of stuff exist. Will buy asap. Heat from me x

It works for ants but I didn't know it kills spiders! One problem that we've had and to be mindful of is that it leaves a layer on the area you spray that in time discolours and I don't think u can get rid of it until you redecorate.

It's fine to use a glass & cardboard if you're happy to get that close to the spider - some of us suffer from a primal form of terror of spiders that leaves us sobbing, shaking & just running from the house!

OBVIOUSLY if you have pets or children spray it high & while they're not in the room. I would expect everyone would read the instructions before using...

I had a giant spider join me on my bed last night as I was happily reading a book!!! Arghhhhhhhhhh........

Not safe for my pet spider

We used this on our tiled floor and it does leave marks which are hard to remove, so just be cautious what you spray it on.

I could never bring myself to kill an household spider, they definately do more good than bad and for me that means they remain. We have 2 cats and in the 8 years of having them we have never seen a flea, they do get treated every month but still many fleas simply jump off and live in the home breeding in the nice warm conditions. I have probably seen 4 or 5 rather large spiders this past week and the bigger the better as I know they are feeding well keeping all the other bugs at bay, remember the ones you cannot see are the ones to be affraid off as these normally carry the disease.

A good sized spider will take on almost any household bug, Fleas, Ticks, Cockroache, Moths, Flys

Your home will be alot cleaner having a few big household spiders about


I would read this before you set about killing them and this is from an insecticide company who make money selling these products

Just pointing it out because pyrethroids are well known to cause seizures, organ failure and or death in some cats, dogs and children. Even if it is a small percentage, I would hardly call them safe for pets. Frankly that scares me more than a spider. But of course that is a matter of opinion.

Perhaps you should get some help for your spider phobia if they leave you, sobbing, shaking & just running from the house!

We have had 2 big ones this week. They run really fast. Glass and cardboard for us too. Not sure I like the idea of strong chemicals around long after the spiders have gone, but I do appreciate some people are very phobic and may find this useful.

Buy peppermint oil & dilute it in a spray bottle then apply around doors and windows. Spiders hate the smell and will leave, they also don't like citrus smells so use cleaning products with lemon fragrance.

Get one of these, the big ones are easy to catch and you can safely put them outside...don't kill them you morons!

I bought 2 tins of this and a tin of crawling insect killer. Had 3 tarantulas in that time so bought some insect glue boards I have a total illogical fear of the big boys especially after having one on my head. As for not killing them and putting them outside are you for real they will just come back in!!! The tarantulas I have had so far would give Usain Bolt a run for his money!! Oh also forgot to mention I also have conkers ( they apparently don't like the smell)in every corner of my living room ........ Yes total Armageddon !! So not sure what works if anything but for the last 5 days I have not seen any and that for me is a success story ...... Long may it continue..... !!!

It's chestnuts, peppermint oil and lemon you want

I don't have fleas, cockroaches, flys or moths so I do not need tarantulas roaming around my house I am quite happy with the combination I have as still none of the 8 legged monsters. I have no idea what has worked but happy with my results as I now don't live in fear of them
