As a first-night house in Minecraft, I always make a tree house, but spiders keep messing with me. How can I prevent this?

Did you have a look at these relevant questions: blocks spiders cannot climb and ways to secure buildings from spiders? What kind of problem are you having? Are they are spawning on top of your tree? Are they are climbing into your house? –  Sadly Not Nov 19 '12 at 18:52
    
for spawning on top just light the top (or ensure no solid blocks are available to spawn) –  ratchet freak Nov 19 '12 at 19:06
    
They are spawning on top of the tree,even though its lit. –  SuperSpy Nov 19 '12 at 19:53
    
If it's lit, and you don't have any dark patches that aren't leaves or another transparent block, then they're not spawning up there. More likely there is either a climbable path up, or they're dropping/jumping down from somewhere else. –  SevenSidedDie Nov 20 '12 at 18:24

spiders actually cannot pass through spaces that are 1 square wide. If you create a tree house with an entrance of 1 space squared and you bullet proof the roof by making a design that has only 1 square spaces spiders will not be able to get through either from top nor the bottom.

Here is a video of what i mean:

alternatively you can light the roof so no spiders spawn there and cut down trees around so the spiders dont jump into your tree house. you still need to 1 square pattern though –  Xitcod13 Nov 23 '12 at 15:44

My answer is this, Replace any wood on the top of your house with a non burnable block and put lava down all over the top with glass under it. So mobs don't spawn on the roof, and your house is lit.
