    First check the windows and foundation for any cracks. If there are no visual cracks then make a solution of white vinegar,water and peppermint essential oil. Spray everything down.

    I had the same problem in New Mexico. I vacuumed them. Ditto Janet.

    Actually the daddy longlegs are there because they eat spider eggs. They are pretty harmless. I would focus on getting rid of the spiers and the longlegs will leave also.

    Daddy Long Legs is your friend. They cannot harm you and they eat other insects. But if you want to get rid of spiders you can buy what I did. They are like a box with sticky stuff inside and they get stuck and you throw them out.

    SPIDERS HATE VINEGAR. Spray your house, EVERY window, EVERY corner, EVERY knook & cranny & they will run away. IF you're patient enough, wet some rags with vinegar & lay them outside next to EVERY door & window & they won't come in. The reason I say rags is because if you simply spray it, the 1st rain afterwards, you will havta repeat. The rags retain the smell for much longer even when they get wet again. I like spiders myself. They keep all the harmful ones in check. They love ants, flies, mosquitoes, gnats, roaches, moths & much more that are a greater neusence than they are.

    Why, pray tell, do you want to eradicate part of nature?

    You can evict them with vinegar and peppermint essential oil. Spiders don't like peppermintoil or vinegar, so use a combination of the two against them. Spray windowsills and entryways with a solution of 1/2 cup white vinegar, 1 1/2 cups water, and 20 drops of peppermint essential oil.
