Spider Webs

What do you use to clean out spider webs in eaves prior to painting. Up here in the mountains, we have lots of daddy-long-leg spiders and they just pack the eaves between the overhanging rafters full of their webs. Can't pressure-wash up there too much because of open venting into the attic. They are really sticky! Hitting them with a broom just seems to roll them up into thick strings which adhere to the T1-11 siding real well. What to do? Anything that will dissolve them?

Much like spiders, daddy long legs are pretty resilient to pesticides and insecticides. Chemical treatments may be applied in serious cases to help reduce population counts; these methods are not usually effective.

Cleaning: Removing webbing can help remove their food source and quite often, they will pick up and leave to find new grounds. Webs can be washed away with soap and water and is known to be one of the most effective ways of removing them from your home. This method can also be used on house plants.

Hope this helps!

The only thing I have found that takes down spider webs is SH. Maybe use a pump up and garden hose to rinse?

A combination of water and chlorine can work on the spider webs.
