The trap kit contains no pesticides and is nontoxic. However, keep out of the reach of children and pets to avoid them becoming in contact with the nontoxic, very sticky, glue. The glue is water soluble. Use warm water to remove the glue from children, pets, carpet, or other materials. Vegetable oil can be used to more quickly remove the trap from a child or a pet. Our traps contain a specially formulated pheromone which is different from other traps on the market. This pheromone is non-toxic and will attract all types of spiders and insects. Control Measures Spiders are best controlled by using the Spider Elimination Kits inside to catch spiders on the move. The traps should be placed near the baseboard, near entrances to rooms. The traps should mostly be placed on the lower floors of the home. They should be folded into a triangle and placed under furniture if children or pets are present.
