I live in an older house and we have bugs in the basement... I bought sticky traps... the kind for mice and bugs... I actually caught a shrew in one but it was not intentional... I did not even know he was in the basement ... he was eating the dead bugs on the sticky trap and got caught and died himself. They catch massive amounts of house cetipedes, sow bugs, beetles and spiders... They work awesome, but will need to be kept away from birds and pets as they are VERY sticky and could easily catch a smaller bird.

thats a thought. My birds spend very little time in my daughters room theyd probably get lost lol) I could try that. I dont think theyd get near them. I just dont want to use any toxic sprays or anything to would hurt the fids.

i heard for spider infestations (especially for yellow sac spiders, which are potentially venomous) a regular vacuum will do, just empty the vacuum outside after each use.


some further info

most common infestations are from yellow sac spiders. we had them something awful this year. another is house spiders, we had one living up on our ceiling, we named her betty lol but she passed of old age this month she ate our fruit flies lol

I would use a hoover too, and make sure they can't get in. I don't know about anybody else, but there's that thing with the conkers if you put them in the corners of your room, spiders will stay away. It worked for me

You can buy spray with horse chesnut oil in.
I have conkers in my car, in most corners of the house, on the kitchen cupboards!
You get the picture!

Curious I clocked on your links to try and idenify the spiders I've found in our house because other than the Black Widow in the dining room window I'm a bit clueless, but the link gave me the heebie-jeebies so I guess our eight-legged house guests shall remain a mystery.
