How do I use these traps?

These traps can be used two ways: flat or folded. When choosing which way to use the traps be aware the Hobo Spider might still be alive and could bite something that comes in contact with it. Determine whether you are going to place the traps in places that are exposed to people or pets. If it is exposed, fold the traps as directed in the package and on the traps. This will reduce the chances of having a small child or pets getting stuck to the traps and then getting bit by the spider. Click here to read stories of people who've been bitten.

Placement of the traps is critical. If you have a place that you frequent see Hobo Spiders traveling, place the traps in the common pathway of the spiders (usually next to the walls) and in the corners of your rooms, especially near windows and other known spider entrances to your home. Feel free to call for more info or help.

Are the traps poisonous or toxic?

No, our traps are just very sticky and naturally baited with a pheromone-like scent to attract Hobo and indoor spiders and other pests. Once stuck to the trap they can not get off and eventually die, usually with in a day or two. Because of this, Hobo and Indoor Spider Traps make a good safe alternative to sprays and chemicals.

What time of year are Hobo Spiders most prevalent?

Hobo Spiders can be found year round but are most prevalent starting in mid-June and going through late Fall. During this time it is in search of a mate and seem to be more aggressive.

These spiders also seem to be nocturnal in nature. Many people have reported seeing and killing as many as ten Hobo Spiders crawling across their finished basement floors in the early morning hours of 1:00am to 2:00am.  For them these traps have eased their fears and now they find them caught on the traps instead of roaming through their homes. Click here to read stories of people who've been bitten.

Others, including many of our employees, keep traps placed through out their homes year round and some have reported nearly 30 Hobo Spiders were caught in their homes through the winter months. Many of the Hobo Spiders caught were young Hobo Spiders instead of adult Hobos which are more frequently caught during the summer months.

By killing the young Hobo Spiders, it will eliminate the chance for those immature spiders to mature and lay more eggs, which is great. Also, the immature Hobo Spiders may pose as a more dangerous threat since its bite may be more potent. So it is good to trap the young spider before it matures and creates more spiders. Either way, by placing the traps out year round you can have peace of mind that you are doing the best thing possible for controlling the Hobo Spider.

Do the traps catch Brown Recluse Spiders?

Yes, our traps will attract and catch Brown Recluse Spiders if you place the traps in appropriate locations, such as under tables, in cupboards, closets, attics, basements, and any place that isn't visited much. You don't normally see very many Brown Recluse Spiders because they are "reclusive" and work at night. Click here to read stories of people who've been bitten.
