Another Diatomaceous Earth Question

We have lots of icky spiders. I hate spiders. They creep me out.

If I spread the Diatomaceous Earth around my basement and the outside perimeter of my house, what will happen to the spiders? Will they leave the house? Die? Should I use it in the basement first and then wait a few weeks and then do the outside?

Re: Another Diatomaceous Earth Question

My understanding is that they don't relocate they die. You may want to treat both areas.
