|This is a sticky spider trap from a home in Idaho. If you use these sticky spider traps you may be shocked at how many spiders you catch.|
It is amazing that the Hobo Spider has not spread to more of the United States than the Pacific Northwest. They have been found in other areas of the United States but this was probably people accidentally moving the Hobo Spiders in packing boxes. Be warned that the Hobo Spider loves cardboard. They love firewood piles and will invest them. Use gloves with long sleeves tucked into the gloves to shake firewood off. You can spray your firewood often with a strong soapy solution to get rid of Hobo Spiders.
