    What do you guys do to keep spiders out of the garage?

    What do you guys do to keep spiders out of your garage? I have some spidy issuses. Mainly because of my dad and his stuff everywhere. I just now went out in the garage and killed two black widows and a ginormous wolf spider. it would probably help if I can clean my dads stuff up too. I saw on TV the riddex does it really work or what other ways non chemically to get rid of them? I just see all of these cool garages and they are always clean.

    Re: What do you guys do to keep spiders out of the garage?

    Several years ago I bought (Costco) those little electronic plug-in transmitters for Pests. They were advertised for both insects and spiders. The one in the garage is still working. Another in the bathroom went on the blink and I am getting the occasional spider again.

    Can't see seem to find them, that type may be obsolete.

    Seemed to work well, especially if clayed, polished and NXT'd. The ocassional QD seemed to help with mice.

    I agree they serve a purpose but they will not serve it in my garage. I got my dad to set a date to clean his stuff up. that should help I convined my mom to get one of those plug in anti insect devices.
    Thanks for the replies

    I live in peace with them. I know not to reach anywhere I can't see first. I also don't walk through my garage in the dark.

    Take a few precautions and you will be OK.

    We have a lot of Black Widows in our neck of the woods, they make their webs low to the ground out of the path of any traffic. They come out at night and wait for prey.

    We use a flashlight to find them then we use a swim flipper to recycle them as the flipper portion of the swim flipper is flat and relatively large and heavy for the purpose we're using it for.

    Want to live with creation in harmony but these things are creepy enough to remove when discovered.

    We have Vinegaroons too and as scary and ugly as they are, because they're for the most part harmless, we'll usually catch them and then let them go somewhere in the backyard.

    The thing I hate about them is that they'll chase you. We also have scorpions here which aren't too bad except if you get stung in a vein like a friend of mine, she was rushed to the hospital and was critical for a while because the venom went right into her blood stream.

    The huge wolf spider that I found once it saw light it ran under my thunderbird and I did not want it to make a home in my car.
