Besides a regular broomstick does a good job at killing pests.
Exactly.
It's not much use as a "torch" or a flashlight.

If I want to kill an out of reach pest, a laser would probably not be the first solution I would think of.
A ladder.
A shoe.
A stick.
A napkin.
A spray bottle of cleaning product...

The solution is simple.

If you want to kill spiders by means an high energy beam (for fun and sporadically) I suggest the Wicked Laser Torch... it's very effective with its 400 °C

Actually these also eat spiders... When I moved into our new house, I was seeing at least one every other day..

The adults are up to 3-4in in length, move very fast and live up to 7 YEARS!! The population can quickly explode in the matter of months...

They can also sting, but are not known to be able to penetrate human skin. There is question however that they may be able to sting young kids. I have a 13 month old and another on the way. With kids in the house, I do not want to use chem sprays, nor have bugs crawling on my family.

I have found with that killing these off, there have been more spiders, but the glue boards are taking care of both.


An interesting note, if you read up on these throughout the internet, you will notice a common question. Many people think that a second bug will come after you when you kill another.. People commonly end up seeing a second bug almost every time after they kill one.

I have noticed that they seem to keep in pairs. Very odd for an insect.

The good part of using glue boards is you trap food for them. They see their prey wiggling and moving while stuck to the glue board. So instinctively, the give chase, only to get stuck themselves

They are attracted to movement, so the scents on the glue boards does nothing...

I suggest something like this: Electronic Fly Swatter and just tie it to a broomstick etc.

They used to make a version on a long pole for people with spiders up in the corners of high ceilings, but I don't see it on their site anymore.
LOL! I have three of this same one. It packs a wallop, but difficult to get bugs on the surface of things, as you have to get them to climb over the outer perimeter of the swatter and on to the metal grating. It's also fun to test your tough buddies courage with after they're feeling invincible. Good times

I agree, I would rather have non-poisonous spiders in my residence then lots of little crawly bugs that want to feed off of me.
Spiders = not into humans
Little crawly bugs = love to eat and poop on my face while I sleep.

Every time I see a spider I think to myself.. hope you are earning your keep around here.. go get em!

Burning bugs with lasers is pretty hard to do. You also need goggles or your retinas will be going up in smoke faster than the bug. It's easier to shoot bugs off the wall with a BB gun IMO (which is very fun)

I thought that too. But after hitting a sheetrock screw, the BB ricocheting, bouncing off and breaking a glass picture frame and wiping out the back sliding door, I decided it was not a good idea anymore So did my wife... I was wearing safety goggles, though. She didn't think that accounted for anything

You forgot the first 2 steps.
1. water proof all walls and openings in the house.
2. fill house with water.

At that point you don't need any of the other steps though. Most spiders don't go underwater.

I have refined bug killing techniques with my 445. arctic wouldnt work well cos u cant focus it. I just focus the point beside the insect. they run once i hit em but by then its focused. I imagine a 12X 405nm would be very effective. that or high power IR diode laser, dunno if IR will burn em as easily.

Man every time i see that pic of the centipede i cringe lol. I hate those suckers, and there sooooo fast. I wonder how there speed to size ratio compares to a vehicle haha. Anyways on a serious note, use a shoe or call pest control would be my advice. Also sleep with your mouth closed!
