    Default Yellow Sac Spiders

    I seem to have a problem with Yellow Sac Spiders in my apartment. Has anyone dealt with these little buggers? I have always lived on upper floors and never seen them before. They leave really nasty welts and are common in Michigan. Fortunately my cats are great at finding them, however, I still seem to get a bite ever few days.

    Does anyone have experience getting rid of them, preferably natural. I have two cats. If I have to, I will move them for a day.

    Thanks!

    Only once did I have to deal with them. My eldest son was wildly allergic to the bites. Unfortunately my solution wasn't natural prevention. I used a flea and tic bomb on all floors. We left for a day with kids and pets. I am not big on chemical solutions but it did work.

    They should move outside soon. From what I've read they prefer to live in trees and bushes. They lay their eggs in corners in webs, so you may want to go through your house with the vacuum regularly and hit the corners hard
