S3A, studio insects.

ok here's the deal. i see 1 or 2 spiders a month in my basement studio - would that be considered an insect problem? i think that's pretty realistic right?

today - 2 spiders in a row. they are crawling into my S3A, right speaker.
i post because of this: one of them crawled INTO the ribbon tweeter section.

WTF?

am i super paranoid or does this actually warrant worrying...?
am i supposed to put a giant dust cover over them at night?

This method works well for those pesky band members that call their friends while sitting behind me in the control room telling them "yeah, I'm in the stuido right now,.."

I just crank the mains and solo their individual parts nice and loud,...The room clears out by the 4th bar....

if you have spiders in your studio, it means you have various other critters as well.

Spiders are predators and would not be there if there was nothing (nobody) to eat.


In fact, the spiders are probably keeping your bug population down. Spiders are good. (Unless you have an easily creeped out female vocalist for a client.)

Get rid of the other bugs and the spiders will leave. This may involve spraying or dusting, but could also be a matter of sealing the place and making sure you don't leave food around that attracts the prey species.

yeah i ended up dusting the whole place today.

there's never any food around.

other than centipedes, spiders are the only other bugs i see around.

As for the S3A, it sounds fine so far, i should be ok.

OK well to me, centipedes are much creepier than spiders. Especially those fast, hairy House centipedes.

Centipedes will actually hunt and kill spiders

the basic flea powder that you use for a dog's bed is good for killing centipedes

they are attracted to dampness, so drying up the place will help as well.

Yeah, centipedes are effing nasty



This one's kinda cute though. Like, you want to hang out and buy him a beer, maybe freak some people out.
