Found 6 total in my stand in 2 days. Several under my chair.

I thought this one was cool because you can see the male also. You don't see that very often.

Nice. Did you squish them or let them hang out until deer season?

I squished them. One of them got away. Spiders don't bother me to much but the ones that can leave a mark do!

I buy Permethrin, a bottle costs around $7. Mix an ounce in a spray bottle and spray the inside of your bilind, shed etc.. when you leave and you will eliminate 95-100% of bugs and spiders.
I got into a stand a couple years ago and when it got light realized I was locked in with a 100 angry wasps. Not that much fun. Took a few whacks before getting free.

Doesn't bother me much, except when I was curious about the egg sack. Slowly peeled it open and a small cloud of baby spiders started running across my hand. Won't ever do that again...Lesson learned!

I thoroughly clean my blinds at the end of season, and then spray them several weeks in advance of season opening. I use the same mix I spray for scorpions around the barn, Demon WP or Talstar. Liberal dose around base and floor. Seems to work.

Martins Viper Insecticide, I think is the same active ingredient as Demon WP.

Can be used inside and out unlike WP. We used to have a fiddleback problem down in the woods, the house had em all in there. Now I spray before coming back to the city and the problem is gone. Works on anything with an exoskeleton. Wasps, scorpions, spiders, it kills em all.

widows freak me out. killed at least a dozen around cargo containers at my camp site this week. keep the entire area sprayed regularly as well as all blinds. Still do the bug bombs and a hot shot in each one though. Have never found anything alive in there upon returning.

came across this dudette on a fence line near camp area...believe it to be a brown widow...any confirmations?

About once a month we bug bomb everything starting in August.

I like spiders. Given the chance, I’ll relocate instead of squishing. However, if they are interfering with my plans that day and relocating them will grossly interior those plans, they get squished. We had a lot of black widows in my shop, I never messed with them and they never messed with me.

Got bit by a brown recluse one day, very mild reaction, hope the same is true for the BW’s.

Hot shot pest strips will kill anything that finds its way into your blind. Just throw one in at the start of summer and you won’t have anything that crawls, flies or otherwise breathes alive in there.

An insect no-pest strip will keep your blind free of any kind of bugs, even the ones that fly, like wasps.

Every September I go to reload the feeder & prepare the blind. I open the door, remain on the ladder & set off a Bug Bomb inside. Come back the next day & sweep the casualties out, hang up a new pest strip & enjoy a bug free hunting season.
