SPIDER CONTROL

There are hundreds of known spider species in Australia. Of these, there are only about a dozen or so species that are considered pests in the urban environment. Most spiders tend to be nocturnal, active at night and feed on almost any insect or other spider.

Spiders are possibly one of the most harmful pests you will encounter around your home. Some species of spiders, like the Redback and funnel-web spider, pose a threat to the lives of your family and pets.

Most buildings have a resident spider population feeding on household insects, stray flies, and each other. They live in boards. Corners and baseboards are favorite locations.

 

Spider Control

Control of groud-dwelling spiders relies on direct application of insecticide to the spider. Our treatment will usually involve the application of a pesticide dust to the roof void, in and around cavities of external windows and doors etc, and under the building (if access is available).

Very safe synthetic pyrethroids are applied to internal skirtings and other likely harbourages. The external perimeter walls, eaves, verandahs, etc and spider webs are all also sprayed. Please leave the spider webs for a couple of weeks before removing to allow the treatment to work fully.

Spider Prevention

Spiders commonly enter homes in two primary ways: entering through open, poorly screened windows and doors and through cracks and gaps around door and window frames. Most of the time, spiders come inside the home looking for prey. The other common method of entry is accidentally hitchhiking inside boxes, on outdoor items and numerous other things that are brought inside a home or business. Contact your pest management professional if you find spiders in your home. Your pest management profession will conduct an inspection and a create a comprehensive control plan that is based on the inspection findings.
