Yes, a lot of the products that we sell are not legal for sale in NY. That's too bad, because most are fairly user friendly, not inherently toxic, and very effective.
For big black carpenter ants (camponotus modoc), the single best system to use is the KM Ant Pro System. It is a an outdoor bait station that dispenses liquid ant bait. This bait becomes the ants natural food source and wipes them out. It also continues to kill outside foraging ants that invade from other sources.
A good outdoor spider control product would be Essentria IC3. Just mix it in water and spray the perimeter foundation, under shrubs, around windows, doors, eaves, etc. It will kill the spiders on contact and provide some repellency for others.
One word of caution. I would highly recommend to get rid of the ants first with the KM Ant Pro System, and then worry about the spiders later. The ants are more destructive, and spraying anything near them could make them reproduce faster and even divide into new colonies. You can read more about that here....
These products are legal for sale and use in New York.
