General Info
  • Spiders may actively search for prey, wait in hiding for their prey to pass by, or build webs to trap insects that fly into them.
  • Aside from seeing a spider in your home, the most common sign of a spider is its web, or old webs (called “cobwebs”)
Where They Hide
  • Most spiders are shy and like dark, secluded areas and can be found both indoors and outdoors
  • Some spiders require lots of moisture and can be found indoors in bathrooms, garages, crawl spaces, storage areas, and attics
What They Want From You
  • Spiders are beneficial because they kill many insects, however webs and spiders themselves can be scary and a nuisance - few people will tolerate them indoors
Why They’re A Problem
  • There are certain types of spiders (Red Back, Funnel Web, White Tail) that can inflict painful and dangerous bites - when these spiders are encountered a professional pest control company should be consulted to solve the problem
  • If bitten, seek immediate medical attention
Tips For Limiting Entry and Avoiding Future Problems
  • Don't leave outside lights on for long periods as this will attract flying insects, which in turn attract spiders
  • Reduce timber piles, bricks, and other outdoor hiding places to a minimum, particularly close to the home
  • Brush down spider webs when they occur
  • Destroy visible spider egg sacs
  • Use an attachment on your vacuum cleaner to remove webs and individual spiders from walls
  • Single spiders can also be relocated by simply trapping them in a cup and then releasing them outside
