The trick to this is not to let the spray reach the house before you add flame. You want a very small fireball and never do it in the inside of house. I use to kill black widows on the outside of our house in CA this way. Inside we keep daddy long legs as pets. Never had to worry abut black widows in the house that way.

I use a candle lighter to kill black widows. Extra length and tightly controlled flame.

We've let a spider and her web live across our front door all summer. She's pretty fat. We've actually wiped out her web multiple times when we knew we had front-door visitors coming, or simply by accident (I've walked right through it at least once). She rebuilds quickly.

Her web won't impact the crazy mosquito population we're suffering with this summer, but I think it's caught a few ants trying to march into the house.

I don't use a vacuum in the garage.... Maybe a leaf blower, but then we'd blow the spider god knows where.

Better to just set it on fire. Smiley: nod

The tall tales I've heard about daddy long legs is that their bite is very poisonous but they can't bite humans.

I was out picking wild raspberries yesterday. I got at least three daddy long-legs as a by-catch.

Edit:

wiki wrote:
An urban legend claims that the harvestman is the most venomous animal in the world,[6] but possesses fangs too short or a mouth too round and small to bite a human and therefore is not dangerous (the same myth applies to Pholcus phalangioides and the cranefly, which are both also called a 'daddy longlegs').[7] This is untrue on several counts. None of the known species of harvestmen have venom glands; their chelicerae are not hollowed fangs but grasping claws that are typically very small and not strong enough to break human skin.

Cellar spiders, which are also referred to as Daddy Long Legs, do have venom glands but they aren't enough to take down a person.

I don't care about if the fact that daddy longs eat blacks widows was or not, just as it allowed me to sleep through the night without worry that I might wake up with a black widow bite on me and/or her staring down at me.

I been bit by spiders at least 3 times as a kid and developed a phobia of spiders. Casting fireballs at black widows help me over come much of the fear, but not all of it. The last time a spider bit me was just a few months ago and I developed a very nasty lump the size of a marble shooter and about as hard.

There are spiders of all kinds all over my house; we live in the woods with ponds and streams around so there's also a lot of flies. Wolf spiders live in the corners of the windows and take care of moths and flies that try to get in. I get some big fuckers in my wood piles all the time.

Things without legs are less creepy. Like if you pulled all the legs off a harvestman, then it's sufficiently less creepy.

That one looks a little larger than the one a guest once claimed to have found in his room. He captured it in the ice bucket.

I killed it with bathroom cleaner. Not sure if it was toxicity or drowning that got it.

We had a spider like that once-- a long time ago when I was a kid living in Georgia. It was gigantic-- a fat brown orb weaving spider of some sort. She made her web directly over the outside of the glass window attached to our patio door. It looked just like a Halloween decoration, but we loved her. She was so big, we could see all of her features, including her eyes. When we tapped on the other side of the glass from the inside, she would bare her fangs and try to bite our fingers. The porch light attracted all kinds of large moths and other insects that would get caught in her web-- almost more than she could handle. It was a real treat watching the spider lunge at the poor things, bit them, and wrap them up like mummies.

My stepdad named her Fred.

I had one similar in the big picture window in my dining room a couple years back. It hid in the J-Channel around the window, you wouldn't see it except at night. By itself it wasn't a problem. The problem was it's offspring. It had TONS of little babies that worked their way through the screen, and one day I opened the window and saw dozens of them crawling inside the window.

That was the "***** that" moment. I got a can of insect/spider spray and doused the frame with it. Now I put that bug barrier around my house twice a year during the summer. Spray around the base of my house, around the doors, windows, etc. Now I don't get many if any spiders setting up nest in my doors or windows. And I won't let a big one make nest anywhere near my windows again.
