•  Peel back the release paper (keep release paper so that it can be reused for storing the traps during daylight hours).
  •  Join as many traps as you like together to create your barrier. Barriers may then be
    arranged to suit your requirements . The most efficient way is to bridge the traps from one wall to another eliminating the possibility of anything getting through a gap. One box of 10 will cover five doorways. The SpidaTraps will not work efficiently if they are just laid down individually, they must be used to create a solid barrier with no gaps.
  • When you catch a spider, fold the trap longways and dispose. If you wish to release a caught spider then applying cooking oil directly onto the glue around its feet and this will slowly break the bond. This is also the best way to release any other objects that becomes stuck. However the oil will destroy the glue and the traps will have to be disposed of.



  • Never place traps at the top of stairs or steps.
  • Using the traps during the day is done so at your own risk as you are increasing the risk of someone standing on one.
  • Never use traps when pets are in the room.
  • If a pet is accidentally caught then pour some cooking oil onto the glue around the feet then after a few minutes gently pull the trap off and wipe the foot with a cloth. If you are unsure take the animal to a vet .
  • Do not allow children to use or play with traps.
  • Always place traps where they are visible.
  • Don’t use traps outside.
  • Do not place the traps in direct sunlight. The glue will turn yellow if exposed to direct sunlight and become inefficient.

We do no recommend that you attempt to pick up or dispose of a trap that has a known deadly spider on it. Call a pest control company and let them handle it.


  • Spiders are nocturnal creatures so the SpidaTrap only needs to be used at night.
  • Store in a cool, dry place within the box and replace the release paper that covers the glue strip. Place the release paper shiny side down.
