How can I reduce the chance of a poisonous spider bite?
The most effective way to avoid having a spider habitat is to keep areas clean, dry, and free from debris and litter. Most spiders prefer remote, dark, and damp areas where they can trap or ambush prey. Residual insecticide sprays and repellents are not very effective keeping spiders away, so double check when you are not sure of an area. Woodpiles, garden hoses,spigots and flower pots are prime areas for venomous spiders.
