Spider Pest Control

What you need to know about spiders

Spiders are the most common and widely found arachnid type in the world. With eight legs, eight beady eyes and a habit of taking up residence in your home, spider infestations are very common. Acting as nature’s own form of pest control, spiders eat flies, mosquitoes and other insects, controlling their population in nature. However these adept predators can quickly become a pest themselves when their food source is abundant as it is around properties backing onto bushland or reserves. 

Additionally many spiders in Australia have a very dangerous, venomous bite which can gravely injure or kill a person. Spiders are attracted to warm, sheltered small spaces meaning many places in a home quickly become their home. Cracks, bricks, vents, eaves, corners all make an appetising spot for a spider to build its web and nest. Many spiders however prefer to build their webbing in trees, between light posts and in your garden, often causing you to walk directly into them. 

Whether it be due to excessive webbing or a dangerous species near you, Buggo Pest Control is here to help with their spider pest control services.

Most Encountered Spiders Needing Pest Control in Sydney

Funnel Web

One of the most famous spiders in Australia, the Funnel Web is dangerous, large and the most venomous spider in the world. 

Living in funnel shaped burrows which give them their name, these spiders are shy and avoid human contact. 

Due to their capability of causing quick death, even in large animals, a funnel web sighting near your property is a cause for concern and a check up with your local pest control experts.

Red Back

Famous and easily identifiable, the red back spider is named after the distinct red stripe found on their abdomen. These spiders deliver a powerful bite and commonly reside directly near human activity making them a dangerous pest. 

These spiders spin tangled, messy webs which act as a warning sign to keep your fingers away. 

These spiders carry a very toxic venom which has caused deaths in the past, making a red back infestation a danger especially to pets and children.

Garden Orb-Weaving

One of the most common spiders in Sydney, garden orb weaving spiders are found in gardens, trees and shrubs close to residences. 

These spiders are some of the most common pest problems with a prolific breeding rate and the tendency to spin webs directly over paths, between outdoor lighting and shrubs where foot traffic is common. 

With a bite no worse than a bee sting these spiders aren’t a problem due to their venom, but this prolific web spinning.

Huntsman

All bark and no bite personified, the huntsman spider is one of the largest spiders found in Australia, however has a bite no worse than a wasp sting. 

With a large abdomen, hairy legs and a relatively flat appearance, although scary the huntsman and you can have a mutually beneficial relationship. 

Huntsman’s diet consists of common pest insects such as cockroaches and other spiders, including the more dangerous species such as Red Backs .

White Tailed Spider

White Tailed Spiders have earned a vicious reputation of causing necrotic ulcers after a bite, however this is simply an urban myth. 

White Tailed Spiders, named after the white spot on the end of their abdomen, have a bite similar in pain to a bee sting and are much more likely to cause localised swelling than necrosis. 

These spiders are accustomed to living indoors and around humans, commonly found in laundry, bed sheets and more. If you have a white tailed spider problem contact Buggo Pest Control today.

Black House Spider

Black House Spiders are small, black spiders commonly found in homes, tree trunks and rocks. 

These are some of the most common spiders find in a home and luckily are not dangerous to the average person. Their bites can cause nausea and uncomfortable swelling however.

These spiders tend to stay close to their webs for the majority of their life and when breeding, repairing the web rather than spinning a new one.  

Clues You Have a Spider Pest Problem

The main clue you have spiders and the reason most people choose to call a spider pest control expert is webs. Webs are found typically outside between outdoor lighting, bushes and trees. 

Spiders can spin webs very quickly, causing ones that have just been taken down, often by an unsuspecting person walking into them, to be put back up in a matter of hours. An infestation carries another sign, egg sacs. Egg sacs typically look like small white beads, these sacs contain the spiders young which will hatch and add to your infestation. These egg sacs are often found in damp and dark areas of your home, under eaves and attached to windows. 

If you see these signs or have seen an increase in the population of the spiders in and around your home it may be time to call a professional. Buggo Pest Control are experts in spider pest control and can help you today.
