I'm wondering if there is any possible way a spider could get into/somehow spread contams into my fruiting chamber. I know that the chamber will/should be 99.9% to 100% closed off (minus holes with either polyfill or tyvek) but i also know spiders have an amazing way of getting into tight places. And I also know they are typically drawn to warm and humid areas. I didn't know if anyone had ever had this happen or even thought about this before. But I have a fair amount of the typical small house spiders (you can only kill so many) and didn't know if this could lead to a problem.

Don't kill the spiders. They eat fungus gnats that WILL cause you problems. A grow chamber need not be sealed up, nor sterile. You want air exchange to prevent trich and cobweb, so naturally the gnats will get in, and so will the spiders. Spiders are our friends.
