Spider Control in Your Home

Arachnida Araneida

Spiders can be a major cause for concern as venomous bites may cause injury, serious bodily harm and even death. Some people are severely allergic to spider bites and may go into anaphylactic shock, which can be lethal. In Australia, deadly spiders include the Redback Spider and Funnel-Web Spider, however since the introduction of anti-venom, there have been no recorded deaths. Other spiders of concern include the White-tailed Spider, Mouse Spider, Black House Spider and Garden Orb Weaver Spider. Spider webs can also be an unsightly annoyance around the home and garden.

Given the nuisance and potential risk to human health, it is important to control, prevent and monitor for spiders in and around the home.
