Nuking my truck

I have a real problem with spiders.... and today, a big, black furry spider, evaded my mashing with my phone (all I had handy while doing 60 on the thruway)

Needless to say the little bastard evaded me. After looking around, I see the little bastard has been busy, webs everywhere...

Can I safely nuke the cab of my truck?

Sure.

Don't leave anything edible in there.

There should be bug bombs small enough for trucks.

Sure you can! Use a fumigator instead of a fogger since it creates a gas and will not leave powder all over the place like a fogger would. Raid puts them out and you can find it at your local Walmart. I had to do this to a truck I drove once because it was flea-infested (the former driver had dogs in the truck), and it worked great!

Just make sure to air it out THOROUGHLY before taking a cruise!

Ya I think I have the fumigators... by raid, 3 cans per box? opwn the little cup, fill water to the line, set can in the cup.... I have tons of those. I use them thruogh out the summer to kill off mainly ants, and termites, cause I store my firewood in doors... (in a shed) just checkin to make sure its safe for vehicle use...

If you set off a bug bomb that smokes, i'd leave your window cracked just a fuzz.
Once its done, just give it a good clean, such as wiping down everything with some simple green or something.

Spiders are to be treated with extreme force... especially big, black furry ones... I can handle the tan colored ones that look like little mini alians (from the movie) but when they laugh at me, while trying to kill it, and drive, plus its big black and furry with white markings ,it must be killed. However its not a black widow, as those arnt furry, and this lil bastard had short stubby legs, where as a black widow has long thin legs... gosh I hate spiders!

This huge dude screamed like a girl,sounded just like a chick, I couldnt scream like that if you paid me a million dollars hahaha. He actually went around with a can of bug blaster in his pocket after that.

Spiders are awesome!

Well, unless it's a funnel web spider. Or a brown recluse.

As much as I like spiders, I would kill any that would be a threat to my well being.

Or the much feared Camel spider, that is not really a threat at all to humans. Even though legends tell otherwise. lol

I love these kids health things. Read a couple. Pretty entertaining how they sidetrack for a second to explain what something is while telling a story. Super informative though. It totally sounds like me when I'm with my niece's. lol
