What kind of spider is this? - July 13, 2015, 09:11 PM

I kill 1-2 of these per day in my apartment (in Colorado).
They are FAST!

I've found them everywhere and it's really getting to me. Terminex came and said all they can do is kill them once they're in the apartment and there's no way to stop them from coming in. It's been a month and I'm killing them at the same rate of 1-2 per day, it's beyond a small problem at this point and I don't know what to do.

Check out BetterTermite.com. A buddy of mine from bicycle racing runs the company, which isn't restricted to just termites, despite the URL. He's good people and might be able to recommend some solutions; at the very least, it's a family business and won't give you the party line of "we'll just keep comin' back, sir."

FUCK THAT!

Read your lease and see what it says. I'd use excessive pest as a reason to break your lease without penalty. Document all attempts to remedy by the leasing office and yourself. If you can't do that then I'd grab a portable propane torch and sit on standby...

Yea I agree with Okayh. I would be the fuck out and take it to court if they want to go that deep. No way I would stay living there. Especially if it was me and the wife...she would basically die for sure.

Non-web making spiders (like the wolf spider) are speedy little fackers without a doubt. The pest control guys should have been able to ID them for you, but your local Ag extension office should be able to as well. Knowing what you're dealing with is half the battle. Sticky traps are effective, but far from a solution. Ortho Home Defense Spray works on just about everything too. Spray it along ALL the edges of the floors, under furniture, ceiling to wall edges and anywhere else you see the little fackers hanging out.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

I have those all around my house and in the garage. They're wolf spiders and they can get very big very big. They are the only spiders that carry thier babies on thier backs so before you step on one, make sure they don't have a bunch of tiny bumps on the back otherwise, when you step on it, you'll have hundreds of the lil bastards running all over!

Oh, the bigs ones will run after you if you threaten them also. Sticky traps or glue traps are effective as someone else said but other than that, not much scares them.

On the good side, they eat and kill every other insect on the ground so you're good there!

Looks like a wolf spider and if it is you do not want to get bitten by one. You will not die but it will hurt and you could end up in the hospital for treatments.

I do my own pest patrol when can maybe help you. I follow this dudes recommendation some time back and has worked well around my house.

We use to have silverfish and house centipedes. Most don't make it in the house. I do this about every 3 months.

fuck i hate this

I'll grab one of the sticky tapes today, bring it to the leasing office and put it on one of the girls desks and say "I have to leave"

Thanks BDS120, I'll try it.
I tried 2 of the kinds of spray you buy at home depot. Sprayed them inside and out, all over the windows and doors, then inside freaking everywhere. Neither worked. Then Terminex came friday and sprayed, I haven't seen a reduction at all. And as I said in the OP, she even said "all I can do is kill them once they're in here, there's nothing you can do to stop them from coming in". Sounded like she didn't really give a damn anyway
