    What are the Signs of Spider Infestation?

    It is normal to see an occasional spider web around your dwelling, however, excessive webs and spiders in and around a building can be controlled. There are a few factors which may attract spiders and indicate their presence.



    If you find yourself repeatedly removing spider webs, this may be a sign of a spider problem. Spiders use these webs to catch prey. Extermination and pest control will limit the time you spend removing webs.


    Cracks and Crevices

    Spiders populate areas where they can burrow. Try to cover and block these holes to avoid creating hiding places for the spider.


    Some spiders like to live in areas of high moisture. People with moist basements often find that a spider problem is worst in that area.

    Unused places

    In the same way spiders populate where they can burrow, they also hide in places that they won’t be disturbed. Sheds, garages, wood piles, under eaves and storage rooms are some of the most affected areas.

    Suspect you’ve been Bitten by a Spider?

    Unfortunately, some venomous spiders call Australia home. While some spiders are harmless, particular species have a deadly bite and the victim must seek urgent medical assistance.

    Funnel Web, Redback and Mouse Spiders inhabit Australia and have a poisonous bite.
    Other species including White Tail spiders and Black House spiders may cause pain, itchiness or redness, but are not deemed as dangerous as the spider bites above.

    If you are unsure of the appearance or species of spider that bit you or your pet, seek medical assistance immediately.
    As a precaution, always seek medical care if you are bitten by a spider.
