Before you begin a spider treatment program you should always conduct a thorough inspection.  This inspection will allow you to zero in on areas where spiders are hiding and to know where to focus the majority of your efforts.  If you are treating for poisonous spiders like the brown recluse or black widow, you should wear long gloves along with long sleeves and pants during your inspection to guard against spiders.  

Using a bright flashlight, start poking around stored boxes, in cabinets, behind and under appliances and furniture, and other places that are often left undisturbed.  Cobwebs are also a clear indication that a spider has been present.  Keep your eyes open and remain alert as spiders will scurry quickly when they sense your presence.

In addition to visual inspection, we recommend leaving small glue boards in cabinets, in the back of closets, under appliances and in storage areas (like attics and baseboards)  to help monitor your home or business for spiders and other pests.
