Spiders and Pest Control

Hello there!

We just bought ourselves a 1977 Overlander! We are stoked. It is a project for sure but we're very excited to get started. We intend to gut it, re-insulate, and take it down the trailer frame.

However, we've noticed there are tons of spiders Any recommendations for pest control? I would like to kill off anything inside before reaching behind cabinets blindly to remove everything.

Our local pest control says they have a safe "spray" that they use that is pretty effective. However, not sure if "spray" / liquid is good? Should I be concerned about spray? Are there better alternatives?

I would fog in it and under it then air it out well and still use masks and gloves.

I've been using this in my trailer and at home. If it works in FL, and it does, it works well.
I spray beneath the trailer and lightly around the perimeter of the cabinets and walls at floor level.
