Out of the 35,000 species of spiders found worldwide, Australia alone is home to a few thousand (including the most dangerous).
Spiders can be a real issue for you and your home for a number of reasons:
Cobwebs make your home look unhygienic.
Spiders can create unrest in your home – spider phobia is quite common.
Some species prefer to stay outdoors creating large webs to walk into
Some spiders are attracted to warm, dark small spaces. This can include wall cracks, pantries, corners, air conditioning vents, and in the roof of your home.
Some species such as red backs can be lethal, especially to children and pets

Spiders differ from insects in having 8 legs instead of 6 and two body sections instead of 3. Some are ground dwelling, while others live above ground in and on plants and buildings. Spiders generally prefer warm temperatures and moderate humidity, which makes South East Queensland and the Gold Coast area a great climate most of the year.
Most spiders eat small insects, with some using a web to trap their meal while others like the Australian White Tailed Spider are purely predators and chase down their prey. Commonly found indoors and can also be found in clothing & bed sheets. They are swift moving hunters and scurry away when disturbed.
The bites of some spiders can be quite dangerous to children and pets. The Funnel Web, found in hinterland area’s is one of the most dangerous and the Australian Redback Spider is also poisonous to humans. Prevention is better than the cure. Don’t take the risk, contact QLD Pest Authority today!
