OK...I got tired of all of the crickets congregating on our back porch. It seemed to be attracting spiders who in turn, when it gets cold at night, attempt to get in the house. Well, I sprayed the entire perimeter of the house 2 days ago, crickets came out of every crevice...it was amazing. Well, yesterday, I had the surprise of my life when I found a rather large spider, obviously affected by the spray. Looked up the type of spider it was: A BLACK WIDOW!! (I know you Texas people are probably laughing at me by now because of all of the scorpions and fire ants you all have...ha!) I scooped that thing up in a lockable plastic container yesterday afternoon...it''s STILL not completely dead (it''s on its way, though). As a result, I''ve sprayed again every spider web I could find (resulting in the emergence of what looks like a brown recluse! Ewww!!!). I then sprinkled long lasting stuff all over the yard, around the house, in and around the kids'' playhouse (don''t worry, once it dries, it''s safe for the kids and Penny to be around). Overkill? Probably...but there''s no more dagum poisonous spiders.
