Default Ant and spider killer

I live where their is allot of woods and the ants and spiders are extremely bad this time of the year. I am looking for ways to kill them off whether it is spray or traps, or items you put in the ground to kill the them off.

I originally thought you were talking about inside the house. But if you mean that you want to poison all the bugs outside your house, I strongly advise against it. You'll be killing many beneficial insects at the same time, poisoning the birds and reptiles that eat those bugs, adding to the pollution of the water table, possibly shortening the life of your pets, not to mention your kids.

I could go on........

How about bringing in other critters that eat these things. I have lizards galore, they don't bother me and the eat the bugs. It's a win win.
