    I'm having some LARGE spiders in my truck. Does anybody know if bug bombs are safe for use inside the cab and under the hood. What do you guys think about raid? would that do any damge to Paint or interior even if it was just on for a few minutes?

    Any other ideas to get these creepy crawlers out is appreciated

    I've bug bombed the cab of a Dodge truck before.
    I inherited it from another employee and there were ticks everywhere (we work outside in rural areas).
    Just had to air it out really well afterward.

    I dont even know what kind they are. I'll try and get a picture tomorrow. there big though like 3-4 inches long tip of front legs to the back legs. I think there mostly under the hood so far but its just a matter of time before there inside.

    yes i probably would... no idk but, dude if one of those fucking things was crawling on me while i was driving it could be quite dangerous that looks like a wolf spider or some species thats close to one. they get pretty big dude and they do actually bite we have them here in south jersey and they are nasty little things for sure.

    its time for a pressure washer and a garage bro.

    Take a flamethrower to the truck. It's a tacoma, so it's fireproof.

    i just looked this up short of some type of kill all bomb or gas its almost impossible to treat for spiders. its very hard to treat their food to get to them and its even more difficult to poison them because they move about and feed on many different insects. that thing is an insect lion and it probably eats what it wants to lol. hope this helps out some.

    Yeh it looks like a wolf spider, they normally only attack when they feel threatened...


    so i guess you should feed them and care for them like a child and it will be smooth sailing:)

    Make them accept you as one of their own, and become their leader.
    Then own the ballsiest Tacoma ever created: the spidercoma, bane of the 4x4

    That's actually a brown huntsman spider. But yeah the bug bombs would probably be the best bet.
