every morning when i open the truck there are spider webs everywhere! every corner of the cab and all across the dashboard.
it only seems to be getting worse with the warmer weather.
are there any products that get rid of spiders? traps? poison? or am i forced to rip apart the entire truck to find the nest/hive/colony?

bug bomb. I forget the actual products name, but you set it up in your vehicle and it pretty much fumigates it. But you can't get in it for a few hours, at most a day. We did it in my great grandfather's old '88 and it was nasty to see all the dead things that were in there.

Like this. insect fogger.

I would bug bomb it if it was my car lol...Im sure they make a small bug bomb for cars.

You would crank the heat on with the windows up in the sun for a hour or so....might drive them out

Maybe this is a little extreme. So save this option as the last try in case all others fail.

If you dont mind the gasoline smell for some days I will recommend to put a pan with a cloth wet on gasoline during a hot day with all the windows closed. The gasoline smell is totally unbearable for any insect, bug or related... this solution never failed to me.

Yeah I would do the bug bomb. Not so sure about doing the gasoline idea though.

hahaha, i have bed spiders, fender spiders, hood spiders, and mirror spiders. mine are all so small that i dont think theyd be capable of breaking skin. for me its because i live on the beach, if i lived back inland its to hot to support life like an above ground coral reef.

ps have any webs that run from inside the fender up between the hood and to the windshield. i knock one down weekly and it always gets built back haha.
