Yes the bombs work we also use an out door spray that also keeps them at bay. We have not had any in the house. Touch wood it stays that way. lol.
You do have to leave the house for a few hours when bug bombing.
Don't worry about the huge hairy spiders........................................... ...... the venomous snakes have eaten them all !!
You just have to have an awareness for them and don't stick anything smaller than your elbow into holes!
Dosent it worry you a bit, putting all them toxins and gasses into your house on the opinion of a few brainy people that it wont give you some king of horrific death in 50 years a bit like the bugs did,(like they did with cigs) and then go in and sleep in it. Think I'll stick to my jam jar and piece of card just in case ?

Been through the nightmare. Arrived 26 January. 2012
The first year we were here I sprayed the outside of our house, every nook and cranny! I have never bothered since and haven't had a problem with huge amounts of terrifying eight-legged beasties (Tyke and his two legs is probably the scariest thing I've found in my house/yard!).
We have a few daddy-long-leg spiders chillaxing in the corners of the ceiling, munching on whatever does pop in, and I find the (very) occasional huntsman in the laundry but otherwise, nothing. I haven't sprayed with anything since!
Obviously it will depend on where you live- we are in blissful suburbia and I would imagine a large rural plot might have more insects wandering in lol but I really wouldn't worry. And if it helps, whilst I do quickly look under stuff outside before picking up (we had a lovely fat redback that lived under the pool filter cover) I often garden without gloves and walk round without my shoes...
We used a bomb a few times but personally I dont think they work. We havent bombed our house for a long time and get the odd spider but just squish them and they gone. We had a baby huntsman that lived in the bathroom for a few weeks, he was always in the same spot, sure he must have gone wandering on a night but he wasnt bothering us so we left him. We get a fair few daddy long legs which we leave.
1) The one outside in it's web is a 'Tent-Web Spider'.
2 & 3) The one with large front legs is a 'Small Black Ant-Mimicking Spider' - I have found a few of these inside and around the house outside.
4) Another huntsman. This fellow was above our bed.
