I have these tiny spiders at my place. They're really small (like 1/3 the size of a finger nail). and show up on my couch and on my carpet. They make tiny nests in the corner of the rooms (almost noticeable).
I wake up with bug bites all over my body (red swollen bumps). When I try to find them I can't!!!! I want to take them out, haha.
Anyone know what type of spiders they are? Anyone with experience? My place was had a pest control guy come by a couple of weeks ago....why does the bug problem seem worse now?
I'm so sorry you are having such a problem with spiders! We had a heck of a time with spiders here last fall and this spring. Not sure I can tell you what kind of spider they are as I haven't really ever seen any that small. From what I have found, spiders can be hard to kill as they don't clean themselves like other bugs (so unless they are sprayed directly by the bug spray it doesn't effect them). Seems like the easiest way to control them is to control the other bugs. If they don't have anything to eat then they will have to move. So hopefully the results of your place having a pest control guy out a couple weeks ago will start to show with the spiders not having anything to eat. You could try spraying the inside of your place with something like Home Defense (safe for inside) to help control any bugs that may be in your place and speed up the evacuation of the little spiders. Hope that helps a little. I hope that your spiders go away soon too!

Spiders are creepy... My advice would be to vacuum the suckers up, then spray really well with some sort of spidercide (whatever you can find at Lowe's), and if they come back then call pest control.... shudder!!
