If you see any spiders, get a picture of them, I do my best to identify it. Did you mean Recluse spider?

Look at www.arkive.org reddish-parachute-spider poecilotheria-rufilata . If the spider is the spider on that page, there is no need to worry about it. If not, I don't know.

Try neem oil. It's all natural and works great.

The natural predators of most mosquitoes are water dwellers, like frogs, various crustaceans, fish, etc.

I would just try to limit all standing water, and then add a few bug zappers.

Domestic cats can live off of grasshoppers and other insects. Lubber grasshoppers however are toxic to just about all creatures. The best way is to remove them by hand. A large sheet or quilt can be used to round them up in larger numbers. Make sure you wear gloves, as some Lubbers spray toxins when threatened.

Yes, we have multiple bird feeders in our yard, but I'm talking BIG grasshoppers - Lubbers and they're about 6in long!! I'm not sure a bird could handle one of these monsters.

Birds are natural predators of grasshoppers. Do you leave out multiple bird feeders?
