How do i get rid of brown recluse spiders?
For brown recluse spiders, it is recommended to get spider traps, which are glue traps. Brown recluse spiders do not spin webs to catch prey, but scurry around at night to hunt for prey. Traps are beneficial because once the spiders are caught, an expert can confirm whether or not the spiders actually were brown recluse spiders. Additionally, traps can be used in places where you would not want to spray pesticides.
Lastly, since brown recluse spiders eat other insects, including dead ones, using a pesticide may simply provide more food for the spiders. The Catchmaster brand of traps is recommended by the University of Kansas, and can be purchased here.
