I have also found that WD-40 being a solvent/penatrent works great as a bug killer.
I discovered this while living in New Orleans, Louisiana,the city is notorious for Pallmeto Bugs,a very large flying cockroach. One evening while
asleep i woke to one walking across my face ,i freaked and got up grabbed the ol WD-40 and (it is extremely flammable) commenced to roasting me a
few,well i noticed immediately that without igniting the WD-40 as soon as it made contact with the bugs they died instantly.
well it just so happens that insects breath through their exoskeleton through tiny little holes in their exoskeletons.
works really really well with the red tube attachment in killing wasp nests or the such,but for some reason not very effective on arachnids not sure
why.anyway that's my contribution hope this helps some one.
