I Hate Bugs!!!

Discovered the hot tub developed a slight leak and had to twist myself into a knot to work on it. While doing so I found several black widows had made a home under the tub! To make things worse I decide to shore up the deck under the hot tub and found a scorpion and more black widows. This house and deck are only 6 months old and the critters are trying to take over!

Anyone know of a good over the counter bug killer that actually works?

Gasoline and packing peanuts make excellent napalm. Light and toss.

Yikes!

One time I decided to clean the basement windows in this old house we had. The window wells were really small--too small to actually get into. So I was on the ground, bending over as far as I could, cleaning the glass, when I suddenly looked up in the corner and there were half a dozen black widows--huge ones. Scared the bejeezus out of me. Ever since then I haven't bothered to clean basement windows. :-)

Julie, I wouldn't clean those windows either with the spiders there. Over the years I have been sliced, diced and shot twice, but black widows scare me more then a fool with a gun or knife.

I was watching a show on the Animal Planet last night about people who'd been bit by spiders and snakes. Spider bites can be really, really bad. No window is worth taking *that* risk! I just keep the blinds down on the basement windows so I don't have to see the dirt. LOL

My youngest son was bit by a black widow a few years ago ... it was a nasty sight! That young man was sick for a week and had to take antibiotics for several weeks.

I used a full can of bug spray under the hot tub and another can under the deck before crawling under there. Gave those spiders plenty of time to die before crawling under there to.

A while back I found a Black Widow in our warehouse. I caught it and put in in a container to keep it for show and tell. That thing lived for months in an old peanut butter jar. I tossed everything I could find in that jar. Grasshoppers, flies, and other spiders. You should see the Black Widow take out a Wolf or a Brown Recluse spider. No problems, it killed them and ate them later.
