Will Talstar XTRA granules kill tarantulas and wolf spiders?

We have a massive number of tarantula burrows in our yard (almost 5 acres). None of the pest control companies in our area of North Texas treat for tarantula problems and don't even know what products to suggest to us. I know that tarantulas are considered beneficial, but I am scared to death of them and I have a 3 year old that plays outside a lot and I just want them gone!


Unfortunately, there is nothing labeled to kill Tarantulas because they are endangered and because insecticides don't have much of an effect because of their size and hairy bodies.
