I moved into a new place and spiders infest the outside of the house and my entrance but also inside. I've killed off every spider I've seen in here but I still see them from time to time. One species I've found in here are 'giant house spiders' as well as faux black widows outside. Well, they looked faux...I didn't get that close to both of them. Every day there's a new web spanning across my steps to ground level and I need to use my broom to pull it down before leaving. Coming home I do the same. Spider webs between both houses where spiders make new webs. Power washers are used to wash the spiders away but they only come back. I kill them so they don't come back. I'm not thrilled to see what fall brings me. It will get dark and I will get a face full of web. There are many different species of spiders here. They are not helpful to humans when you need to constantly kill them and remove their webs. There's just too many. I have peppermint oil but I don't think it works well. I put a drop of oil right by a spider and it didn't move. Well, I gotta figure out what holes are open and close them for fall. Goddamn....The rest of the place is great....just the spiders...

Spiders among a lot of other similar creatures have great purpose on this planet. These poor things are only going about their own business trapping insects that actually are pests, and judging how long of a thing you wrote it sounds like you actually enjoy what you do to them. Spiders are working with us not against us, you're the scary evil one. God humans can be so cruel!

20 years ago, I noticed the spiders coming in the house weren't just the usual Daddy Longlegs types anymore. I started getting these bigger, freaky looking spiders coming into the house and I still do. I still don't know what species they are, but I'm afraid of getting bit by one. We have mice in the house, and I've put out glue traps, but we've ended up catching a bunch of these spiders instead. I don't know how to get rid of them either, OP.
