Unhappy Spiders Oh My!

Hi, this is a call to all my fellow mainers! I need
your help. My house is being invaded by spiders.
They are large. They are a light brown color and
they have 2 black stripes down their backs. They
are not at all hairy. They do not seem to be able
to climb vertically. They only come marching
around at night. HELP!
Can anyone at all help in the identification of these
guys? I would appreciate any help at allllllll!!!!!!

It's time to spray the basement and the perimeter of the house. Usually takes me only one application. I just use a couple of cans of Raid.

Creepy little things, aren't they? They let up when the nights get over 45 degrees or so.

I'm in complete agreement...I logged in here this AM before my shower and saw that pic.....when the water ran down the middle of my back I could have sworn it was something crawling! There was one of those in the globe of the ceiling light last weekend. Why is it they can get in there but never get out? lol....anyway, my advice is to spray just like MsJL says. It works!
