So I realize it's been a while. I'm trying to find a job which is not so easy and sort of sucking up all of my time...

ANYway... a family of mid sized black spiders have decided against all odds to make my room their home. I say against all odds because I clean my room every day... there are stacks of papers and what not but they get moved on I kid you not a daily basis.... ANYway my father and I cant seem to get rid of them. they look like wolf spiders which are pretty common out here but wolf spiders uually dont live in packs and they keep showing up in my bed which is disturbing. We've taken the whole thing apart, there aren't any spider houses or anything...

anyway does anyone know of any way for me to effectively kill the spiders without killing the birds? I feel like they;re all over me all the time now and it's like... ridiculous.

help?

Wow, with out finding their "home" I don't know of a way to get rid of them that wouldn't harm your birds. Sure hope someone else does? Can you re home them for a couple of days so you can spray your house? My DH uses a barn spray for the spiders in the basement twice a year. He opens the door down there and I close the vents upstairs where the birds are (he's only done it once since I had the birds)I have also told him he HAS to do it when it is warm outside so I can also close the door of the room my babies are in and open the windows.

I saw on a tv show that if you keep destroying the webs they will eventually starve or leave.

Here are some links I found with some ideas

Good luck

Eww...Heather, you poor thing! Spiders CREEP me SO bad!

I'm with CM...can you rehome your keets for a few days and bomb the heck out of your room?

Try www.whatsthatbug.com to help you identify what type of creepie you are dealing with! If you have pics he'll sometimes be able to tell you what you have and what to do!
