What Are The Most Common Types Of Spiders In Australia

There are hundreds of spider species that call Australia home and some of them are considered to be the most dangerous in the world. Most, however, are harmless to humans. The most common spider species include:

  • Redback spider

    Female Redback spiders are highly venomous and dangerous to humans. They're characterised by a black body and a distinct red line running down the abdomen. You can find them in dry, sheltered areas such as garden sheds and logs.

  • White-Tail spider

    White-Tail spiders are reddish-grey, live on the floor and prey on other spiders. If provoked, this species has been known to bite humans and cause a condition called necrotising arachnidism which involves blistering and ulceration of the skin.

  • Garden Wolf spider

    Garden Wolf spiders are commonly found in the ground where they love to dig holes and cover the opening with debris. While usually harmless, this species can bite if provoked.

Where Do Spiders Live?

Most spiders prefer to live outside in webs or burrows, but they will enter a house through cracks and openings if looking for food, mates, warmth or moisture.

When Are Spiders Most Active?

Spiders tend to be most active during cooler months. They're predominantly nocturnal and come out at night to feed on other pests and spiders.

Top Tips For Spider Control

  • Keep your house clean. Vacuum and dust regularly and don't leave things lying around on the floor
  • Keep your garden tidy. Prune trees often and keep plants and foliage away from the walls of your home
  • Seal up any cracks and openings
  • Cover pet food to deter other pests that are a temptation for spiders hunting for food
  • Be on the lookout for signs of an infestation by checking for webs and burrows in the house or backyard

When Is It Time To Call SafeHouse Pest Control?

Often, commercially available treatments adopt a one-size-fits-all-over-the-counter-treatment that are largely ineffective and don't consider your individual needs and circumstances. A professional pest controller will have access to stronger ant products with special active ingredients that aren't available for purchase in supermarkets or retailers.
