Spider Control

Our buildings and gardens are ideal for spiders because they provide food and and anchorage for their webs or soil for their tunnels.

Australia has poisonous spiders and they include the Sydney Funnel Web Spider, the Northern Rivers Funnel Web Spider, Redback Spiders, the Mouse Spider, Wolf Spiders, the Black House Spider and the White-tailed Spider.

In Summer and in wet weather, male Funnel Web Spiders can wander indoors in search of a mate. The male is more venomous than the female.

Spiders Can…

  • Bite and cause pain and even death. Luckily deaths are rare in Australia although there are many documented cases of people becoming very sick after being bitten by one of our toxic Spiders.
  • Have unsightly webs and can collect dust and debris.
  • Cause panic and alarm particularly around children.

Jim’s Spider control services

Spiders are creepy crawly insects and some species tend to weave their intricate webs in our homes and offices. Apart from being an eyesore, spider webs in our homes would give visitors a sense of un-cleanliness. To keep spiders away (spider control) from our abodes we need to initiate some kind of spider control.

Spiders that take up residence in our homes, offices and elsewhere may not be the venomous ones hence our fear of them may not be justified. Venomous or not we would not like them in our homes, and would need to have effective spider control, to hinder their free entry.

There are many natural forms of spider control which could be initiated to prevent their proliferation. Spiders detest the smell of citrus, and many households use different forms of citrus to sprinkle in areas where they could be found. Likewise there are many other natural herbs and extracts that could be used in effective spider control.

If the problem is aggravated and you find it difficult to curb their proliferation, then you may need to call trained and experienced personnel to put in place a specific spider control initiative. Use of any strong chemicals should be avoided.
