spider treatment for screens in our porch

Is there anything you can put on window screens and screens on a screened in porch?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We live on a lake which I fear makes the spider problem worse, they are everywhere.

Thanks for any help.

No doubt spiders seem to be more of a problem around lakes. My personal thought is that it’s directly due to the abundance of flying insects. I keep a boat at a local lake and it invariably is covered with webs if I don’t treat it regularly with an aerosol called PHANTOM. This odorless, “dry” formulation is well suited for the boat and other hard to treat surfaces like a window screen. At the house I use it for several screened windows as well as the baseboard areas in rooms with hardwood floors. It’s so efficient you can’t even tell where it’s been applied so it’s good for areas like this. That “no wet” look after spraying is a big advantage to using it.

I also suggest you review our SPIDER CONTROL ARTICLE and get one of the concentrates we have listed to use around the entire perimeter of the home. No doubt keeping the home treated can really help and if you’re not addressing the rest of the structure, I’m afraid the windows will be harder to keep spider free.
