My friends said, in Spain they can get a surface cleaner called Genie that has an insecticide in it & is very efective at keeping bugs etc out. Has any one seen this in Turkey?

No matter how clean your house is,you will be sharing the house with other unwanted visitors.
The jumping spider is such a fascinating insect.l have them all the time in my house and have accepted their presents to live with them.Just by leaving them alone and admire the way they come up to you and stare is quite comical,because in the end they become fed up and jump onto another sofa looking for prey.They are the cleaners in nature and will aid you in the fight against some of the unwanted pests in your house.

Biological warfare is the best method to use for eradicating such unwanted pests.But if you do have a phobia of spiders,especially when they jump on you with those big compound eyes of theirs,while watching a horror film with a hot cup of tea in your hand:fear:.Then it is time to call in the exterminators.

The insecticide is your only option.But the problem with insecticides,it does alter the insects immune system,where it will have no effect on the generation of spiders in the future.
The other option is if you can't beat them join them and just class them as a wanted insect that aids you in ridding the house of other pests.So if you see a jumping spider coming your way and wishes to pass by jumping on you.Allow the spider to leap on you so he can go on his way looking for prey.

But if you do have phobia of spiders

Find a hardware shop that sells chemicals - usually have a manufacturers sign outside. If you can find a Bayer supplier get "K-Othrine SC 50" - less than 10tl and also buy a spray bottle to use exclusively with this - again around 10tl.
Harmless to pets.
Dries on surfaces that you spray and stays effective for 3 months.
Also very good (not for them, but for you) for cockroaches and the like.

Love the jumping spiders, I cal the the spider SAS, the way that they "absail" off high surfaces and will suqare up to you if they feel threatened rather than run away.
One word of caution though, the little buggers can and will give you a painful nip if you upset them.

So it is not wasted I spray it anywhere the mop does not go, otherwise you are just washing it away. I don't spray worktops or places where open food might touch it - but around tins and packets of food should be OK. Behind furniture, under beds, in cupboards etc..
It does not stain, so painted surfaces are not marked and it dries into the paint.
Anywhere they might come into the house - door stops, drains.
Outside you can spray it on patio areas - again, where it is not going to wash away.

I use the Bion "pen" which is like a push up glue stick. I go round my doors leading to the outside and it leaves a pink chalky mark. Things may cross the line but if they do they DIE.

I have of course posted appropriate safety warning posters so that all bugs can make an informed decision on whether to trespass and cross the line.

We have fitted insect screens to all doors and windows and very rarely find any bugs or insects at all in the house (as long as you remember to keep them closed). They don't obstruct the views and also keep a lot of dust out, so perhaps that is an option for you.

I have found that 2 metric tonnes of fertiliser plus 500 grams of ******** plus a d*******r clear the area, about 2 kilometres will do, and then light the fuse. Try it on bonfire night, quite spectacular, oh, and gets the little b*****ds too. Probably a good time to leave the country before it all goes up and claim damages from your insurance company!!
I have termites plus something I am sure is blackwatch beetle so any help other than the above would be gratefully received!!
