To help you maximize the potential of this spider killer spray, check out our five tips for using Miss Muffet’s revenge.

Pest Control for Spiders Can Be Most Effective in Fall

Spider control means keeping them outsides

Fall is a popular time for spiders to move indoors. There are two reasons for this.

During the fall season, spiders tend to seek shelter for warmth as the temperatures drop. Additionally, it is their mating season, which prompts them to leave their webs in search of suitable locations for reproduction.

With this in mind, the best time to spray for spiders is in early fall, before your home becomes a breeding ground. If it’s already too late, though, the right spider control products can help clear them out and keep them away.

Miss Muffet’s Revenge provides complete home protection by eliminating spiders from your household and establishing a protective barrier for your home’s future safety.

A single bottle can treat the perimeter of a ranch-style home twice, and a single application can protect your home from spiders for up to 12 months. In addition, with an innovative sprayer design that can reach distances of up to 10 feet, you won’t need to climb up potentially dangerous ladders.

Spiders Like to Hide in Dark, Dimly Lit Areas Inside Your Home

Spiders typically like dark, dimly lit spaces. These areas let them live in relative peace.

So, when looking for spiders or cobwebs in your home, consider checking these places:

  • Attics, basements, crawlspaces, and garages
  • Beneath staircases
  • Floor and ceiling corners
  • Storage areas like cabinets, closets, and pantries
  • Under furniture
  • Unsecured boxes
  • Window wells

If there’s a place you don’t clean or dust regularly, spiders will take that as a sign to move in. Of course, spiders also need a food supply, so pay special attention to any areas of your home that may attract flies, mosquitoes, or other bugs.

If you see cobwebs, this is a sign that spiders have already set up their home. Even if you don’t see any signs of spider life, it’s essential to take preventative measures to keep spiders away.

So, whether you see a cobweb or not, attack the areas where spiders are most likely to live.

To apply Miss Muffet’s Revenge, spray current or potential hiding spots until the surface is wet but not soaked. The next day, use a broom to sweep up or knock down any lingering cobwebs.

One application of Miss Muffet’s Revenge can last up to 12 months. So, if you see any spiders in new locations within your home, spray the area immediately and protect your home’s perimeter.

Spiders Like to Live Undisturbed Lives Outside Your Home

Perhaps the most significant indicator of whether you’ll get spiders in your home is how many there are in your yard, lawn, or garden. Spiders love these spaces, as they provide ample opportunity to hide and catch their prey.

Check areas typically left undisturbed or near a potential food source when looking outside for spiders. For instance, outside lighting, which attracts lots of bugs, is a common place for spiders to weave their webs.

However, outdoor lights aren’t the only place you can find spiders outside:

  • Doors
  • Eaves
  • Gardens
  • Gutters
  • Near the foundation
  • Porch stoops
  • Sheds
  • Window wells
  • Wood piles

Spiders can be beneficial when left to their own devices outside. So, scanning these spaces is sometimes more about finding potential sources of indoor arachnids than vanquishing unwanted guests.

Still, sometimes, any amount of spiders is too many, and if they’re already too close to your home, you’ll want to take action to prevent them from taking the short journey inside.

Miss Muffet’s Revenge can help create a barrier between potential entry points and your spider neighbors. 

First, spray areas where spiders like to hide until the surface is wet but not soaked. Then, the next day, use an outdoor broom to clean up any remaining cobwebs.

Protect Your Home’s Perimeter, Both Inside and Outside

Spray Miss Muffet's Revenge in storage areas such as a crawl space or attic.

As we’ve mentioned, prevention is the name of the game when it comes to spider control. The best way to keep spiders from entering your home is to spray your home’s perimeter both inside and out.

Spiders have access to a variety of ways to get inside your home:

  • Cracks in siding, foundation, or roof
  • Open doors and windows
  • Vents
  • Things — like packages, firewood, or even people — that move from outside to inside

With Miss Muffet’s Revenge, you can create an invisible barrier around your home’s perimeter and any potential entryway. 

For outdoor use, spray a 12-inch wide band around your home’s perimeter. The surface should be slightly wet but not soaking.

Also, do it on a day without wind or rain. Otherwise, they may wash away the barrier and leave your home unprotected.

A single application can last up to 12 months. However, if the area is exposed to the elements, it may require a more frequent application schedule. 

After application, come back and clean up any remaining spiderwebs.

For indoor use, spray a 4-inch band along your home’s interior perimeter or wherever you notice potential entry points. Again, spray until the surface is wet but not soaking.

The next day, come back and clean up any spiderwebs.

Miss Muffet Revenge’s Innovative Sprayer Makes Spider Control Easy

Beyond the spray itself, the innovative sprayer that comes with each bottle of Miss Muffet’s Revenge can help eliminate and prevent spiders.

The sprayer is attached to a three-foot-long tube that helps you hold it in ways that could be awkward or uncomfortable with other spider control products. It also gives you some additional reach should you need it.

The sprayer also has two settings: stream and spray. The stream setting allows you to reach distances of up to 10 feet, while the spray setting allows you to cover larger areas more quickly.

So, whether you need pinpoint control or need to cover a larger area, Miss Muffet’s Revenge can deliver the attack you need.
