Don't bug me


Hi All,
The house siding is full if spider webs etc.. Nothing really new just wondering if there is a solution.
Live in ChicagoLand. Hot and humid in the summertime.
Aluminum siding painted last summer with Zinsser primer and Pittsburgh Ultra acrylic. Wondering if applying some of the big box store bug stuff(Bayer etc..) would be good?
Concerns are yellowing runs, drips and erros (Cubs are gonna win this year...have faith to go)
Input would be appreciated

Try not to use chemicals! It will end up in in the environment and drains and then into the lakes and other water supplies. Some people just spray off siding with a hose attachment or not too high a pressure sprayer (can be rented). However, depending on type of siding be careful of driving water in behind it. A good downpour of rain may also dislodge them and clean the siding. Does it rain in Chicago? Never had to spray down our pine siding, single storey; just brush away any really annoying webs with soft broom. Then clean the broom on convenient bush or tree and or wash it in the sink.
