Trap information


Why should I buy Big H traps instead of regular glue traps?

1) Big H Traps are the only traps made specifically for brown recluse & hobo spiders.
2) BigH TrapsTM contain 3 times as much glue covering up to 4 times as much area as other traps.
3) The glue contains an attractant.
4) The traps have a unique design to help lure in nearby spiders.

How do I use Big H 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.

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.

Are Big H 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 within a day or two. Because of this, Hobo and Indoor Spider Traps make a good safe alternative to sprays and chemicals.

What additional products would be helpful?

We offer a great compliment to our Traps--Spider Web Buster! This is currently under redevelopment for 2021. This spray comes in a 16 oz. spray bottle and deteriorates the webs attachment points making for easy removal and maintains a neat, clean appearance. It also discourages the reformation of cobwebs. The spray works indoors or outdoors, does not stain, and leaves no long lasting odor.

Do Big H 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.
