    of effect on spiders, and pesticides won’t do much. What it exactly means is that spraying is not one of the
    most effective solutions to kill the spiders. The reason is because they have long legs and sprays can only
    touch their feet. It won’t have any effect on their circulatory system.

    newspaper or shoe of your choice. Spiders are not insects. They are arachnids.
