Flea bomb for spiders?

Does anyone know if a flea bomb would kill spiders? I have a shed in my yard and I keep all my dog training supplies and dog stuff in there. I opened it up the other day and there are spider webs over everything. I'm a total tomboy (last week I was digging up earthworms for fishing) but for some reason I've always been *terrified* of spiders. There are some supplies in my shed I really need but can't touch. I was thinking of using one of those flea fogger/bombs in the shed?

I think there are foggers made to kill spiders.

What kind of spiders are they? That will make a difference. I don't think foggers work for Hobo spiders.

I watched Infested on Animal Planet the other night. A couple used foggers and they came home and lots of dead spiders. Something weird happend, though. They started getting overrun with Hobo spiders. Come to find out...when they used the foggers, the foggers killed the other kind of spiders that were keeping the hobo spiders at bay.

I live in Michigan so they aren't anything really bad. Some are definitely wolf spiders which CREEP me out big time. They've just gotten everywhere in there, I wouldn't know where to begin removing them plus I'm too terrified to even go in there. There's a brush I need for a show and it's got a big funnel web on it!

Wolf spiders do not spin webs. They are predatory and live in little burrows in the ground or other nests they make. Do NOT use bombs if you have spiders. Like previous poster said, those will only exacerbate your spider problem. Many spiders feast on the dead bodies of other bugs!!! Call terminix or another exterminator for advice or service. We have lots of wolf spiders where I live, the big buggers too. I called terminix and havent seen one in the house in since last september. I only see dead ones outside and in the garage now. I pay 70 dollars every 3 months and if I see a bug in between (which I never do) theyll come out and do a free spray again. Hope you can find a solution.

Wolf spiders make funnels don't they? That's what I've got, these scary, nasty funnels covering everything. Big hairy spiders. There are also some smaller, less scary ones too.
