“How do I get rid of rain spiders?” This is a bit of a perplexing question to answer. The reason for this is that rain spiders actually come from South Africa. So unless you people are buying these spiders at a pet store and then letting them loose, you shouldn’t have a problem with them.
Rain spiders are huge spiders, some of the biggest out there in fact. They are not known to be aggressive but they will bite if they feel threatened so be aware of that as you are treating for them.
If you do have a problem with rain spiders that you need to get rid of, you can go about it the same way you would go about killing any other spider. In fact, in Florida, it is more likely that it is another type of spider that you are encountering in and around your home.
The best type of pesticide to use against spiders is a pesticide dust. Dust works better than liquid against spiders. If you put down a liquid pesticide, the spiders will avoid it and tip toe through it, not getting a whole lot of it on their feet and bodies.
A pesticide dust is more effective as it will actually cling to the hairs on a spider’s body, more effectively coating the spider in pesticide.
There are a couple choices of dusts when it comes to killing spiders. You can choose a synthetic such as Seven Dust which is fairly safe or you can choose a bio pesticide. EcoSMART makes some very effective bio pesticides. Some of these are so safe that they are actually exempt from EPA regulation.
An ounce of prevention is really worth a pound of pesticide so be sure to keep your house clean if you want to avoid having spiders inside. Eliminate anything that a spider would want to feed on and you may be able to avoid the problem in the first place.
