I grow in a 4x4 tent and I got a new space in a basement . Today me and the miss went to clean out our 8x8 space we are " Renting" it was filled with old debris bugs , spiders , webs etc. So my question is should I do a Pre spray for bugs before I grow and setup my Tent? Or is the Tent a good enough shield?

What is a good spray to use to be on the safe side?

Bleech and water everything, make sure a strong fan blows on it to dry throughly. Nothing lives through bleech.
Of course make sure the plants aren't in the room while bleeching.

Just pretend you're cleaning a hospital room, bomb the space first with a pyrethrum bomb, then clean it. Then get the walls and floor dialed in white and do your thing.

I also like a pyrethrum bomb for a space with a lot of bugs. Read the directions well and follow them. I often use them in really icky crawl spaces I have to spend time in....

Basements can be a great place to grow. The temps stay fairly constant and it is generally easy to get wiring and things where you need them. You aren't really renting this space though are you?

I put my tent in my basement behind my furnace where there was junk piled up sitting there for years. I swept it up , sprayed the area with Home and Garden bug spray ( Konk ), I have harvested two crops in that spot with no bugs .

Bugs hide everywhere. Do not believe that just because you do not see them and or that it is is cold that you do not have them. They are dormant or in "hibernation". When you warm up the space, the bugs will come out. And whether they are bugs that eat plants or not, you do not know. I personally would never plant in a space like that without cleaning it thoroughly. And it is not just bugs--you are also cleaning to get rid of any mold or mildew spores that might like to hide in your basement. Take everything out and CLEAN AND DISINFECT! Every single person told you to spray and clean....and we do know that it is winter and cold out. The bugs are there and very probably mold and mildew!

The advice here in a new space in to be proactive, not reactive after your in veg,or worse bloom.
