You could go straight to John Deere off of Viscaya. I am not sure about their policy for residential customers but I know Merit can be purchased by home owners in certain concentrations.

Also, make sure it is liquid flowable and mix it with a liquid palm fert or a slurry of Epsom Salt and TechMag. You have to add the nutrient in order to guarantee the uptake.

They have granular products that say WDG, Water Disovling Granulars. The most common is Bandit at John Deere.

I hope this helps.
THX again

any exterminator recomm?
Recluse infestation in an outdoor space in this area should be rare. Make sure they are actually recluse spiders and not misidentified. If it is a particularly nasty infestation you will certainly want to hire a good pest control company. Most spiders only bite a person as a very last resort and recluse bites are rare in Florida but some recluse species have a very nasty bite.

We use Garys Pest Control and aside from being a customer have no affiliation with them. They are also highly rated on Angies.

Bayer Advanced Protect and Feed and Bayer Tree and Shrub contain a small amount of the active ingredient Imidacloprid in a 1 gal concentrate. Both at Home Depot

They can't get away, it's a captive audience. Once you dust the attic they die or they move. If they move into the house, they are dead. No one lets a spider get away. Oh, hairspray, it's the best way to kill spiders in the house. I am talking about Aquanet, big aerosol can that can be used as a flame thrower. The hairspray gums them up and they die. Don't spray raid or another type of canned insecticide. There are adverse affects that may cause other insects, ants mainly, to go on the defensive. When under attack, the ant queen "buds" her colony, you now have multiple colonies, multiple queens and about 10 weeks of work by someone like me to clean it up.

Also, it is not a BR. They can't live indoors. They may get lost in a shoe at night, but they don't like to scurry across the tile floor or carpet. They want darkness.


Good luck, it will all be okay. Merry Christmas!

PS. Don't use the Aquanet as a Flame Thrower to kill spiders. Just spray the Aquanet on the Spider, it will ball up and die. If I just ruined hours of potential spider hunting fun, I apologize!
Wow, Bugman, thanks!! I have an enormous fear of spiders, and although I haven't come across any in my house yet, its great to have a way of dealing with them without having to get too close. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
