Hello, We haven't evaluated any of these products here in the lab. You might want to consult with your local hardware store. Products such as Raid claim to work on all types of bugs. I hope this helps.

Go to your Ortho dealer and tell him your problem. Spray both inside and around the outside of the foundation of you home with what he gives you. Ants can be stopped by putting small mounds of yellow corn meal where they walk. They take it back to their nests and they cannot digest it and it kills the whole colony!!!

Use Terro on the Ants. Set it where you see a bunch of them and open the buffet can. As for spiders, they are suppose to be good luck in a home! If you don't like them step on them, they are pretty slow.

Raid. Or have the entire home treated by Orkin or someone like that.
