Default Spiders

How many others have spiders in their garage, run into cobwebs or get bitten by the critters?

Do any of you use an electric ultrasonic critter control device such as https://www.amazon.com/Control-Ultra...er+repellents?

The review of these devices on Amazon are mostly 4 stars and higher. But admittedly many reviews are in English as a second language which draws some suspicion.

So I'm asking garage aficionados their experiences.

In my experience, they don't work.

I've had 4 of them plugged into my vacation home for the last 10 years and the dumb mice crap on them, and the spider webs are all over them.

Nothing beats good old chemicals. I am trying to concrete all around mine to make it even easier.

Lots of wildlife in the garage. Lizards, snakes, spiders, mice. Had noticed mouse droppings and set traps but they never sprung. One day I found a rat snake. Guess that's what happened to the mouse. We have wolf spiders, you can google it, they get big. They eat other insects like roaches. One big happy eco-system. Until they get into the house then its chemical warfare.

We have wolf spiders, earwigs and mormon crickets. Earwigs were giving us a problem in the house so we hired a company to come out and I had them do my garage and shop too. No more live critters. I didn't know how many I had in there until I saw the piles of dead ones. Much nicer and nothing crawling on me.

Mormon crickets? Do they wear suits and ties and ride around on little bicycles?
