Mark (and anyone else interested), we've used Ace Hardware brand spider spray. Seems to do the trick at the river for probably a month at a time. Dick, I'm interested in your option as you might have a few more years experience than I do...

Dick, I googled barn spray spiders in there several products and also home remedies. Is there one in particular that you found effective?

This is by far the best stuff I've found to date. I spray once in the spring, and again in august. I'm into our 5th season on one bottle, so don't let the price scare you!

Many years ago at Michigan City our floating docks were infested with spiders. It was so bad Patty got bit in the night a couple of times and the subsequent inflammation and rash were nasty. One day I was bitching about the damn critters when a dock mate who was a charter fisherman and never slept on his boat heard me and said " Why don't you use some barn spray" ? He did live on a farm whilst I was a city slicker. I didn't know what the hell barn spray was or where to get it. He replied he went by a Farm & Fleet on his way to the boat and subsequently brought me a spray can of some kind of insect spray. It did work beautifully, but it's been so many years ago I forget what the brand was. Here's a link to what I found on Farm & Fleets web site. However, John's recommendation is pretty strong, he's much younger than I am and hence his memory certainly is better, plus he has multi year experience with his recommendation. Whatever you use, or however you do it, let's kill the little bastards when they get close to our boats :-)

That product works great on the spiders around the covered moorage above my boat. I picked it up at ace hardware. Also mint extract with water in a spray bottle does the job on spiders that sneek inside.      Bob

Great info men, thank you very much. I almost considered the shotgun this weekend. I will let the spraying commence!
