Our Steps
Identification & Risk Management

Correctly identifying the species of spider is the first step in assessing the potential risk. Our experts are trained to distinguish between harmless and harmful spiders, providing you with accurate information and appropriate treatment options.

Customised Treatment Plan

Based on the identification and your specific situation, we create a tailored approach to spider control. This may include targeted treatments for known habitats, physical removal of webs and egg sacs, and the application of safe, effective repellents.

Eco-friendly & Safe Methods

Our commitment to environmental stewardship means we prioritise methods and products that are safe for your family, pets, and the broader ecosystem. We focus on solutions that deter spiders from entering your space while minimising impact on other wildlife.

Prevention & Education

Beyond immediate control measures, we offer advice and strategies to prevent future infestations. This includes sealing entry points, reducing outdoor lighting that attracts insects (spider food sources), and maintaining clutter-free environments to remove hiding spots.

The Silent Predators Amongst Us!

Spiders, often unseen and unnoticed until it’s too late, are common inhabitants of our homes and gardens. While many are harmless and even beneficial in controlling insect populations, certain species pose risks to our health and well-being.

In Australia, home to some of the world’s most notorious spiders such as the Red back Spider, Huntsman Spider, and the feared Funnel-Web Spider, the importance of professional spider control cannot be overstated. These creatures, while fascinating, can deliver painful bites and, in some cases, venomous reactions that require immediate medical attention.

Understanding the behaviour and habitat of these arachnids is crucial for effective management and prevention of unwanted encounters. Our professional spider control services offer peace of mind, employing strategies that respect the delicate balance of our ecosystem while ensuring the safety and comfort of your home or business environment.

Australian Deadly Household Spiders

Redback Spider

Prefer warm, sheltered locations. They are often found in dry, out-of-the-way places such as sheds, garages, under outdoor furniture, in junk piles, and even in the corners of seldom-disturbed rooms in homes.

Funnel Web Spider

Typically found in moist, cooler environments. They often reside in burrows in the ground, under logs, or in dense foliage. In urban areas, they might be found in cool, damp places such as under houses, in rockeries, or in garden mulch.

Coastal Whistling Spider

These spiders tend to live in burrows in the earth, which they line with silk. Their habitats can range from open forests to shrublands and even suburban gardens, particularly where there is loose soil that allows them to dig their burrows.

Australian Not Deadly – or Less Threatening Spiders

Huntsman Spider

Commonly found in natural settings like forests, under tree bark, and rocks, as well as in homes. In residential areas, they are often seen on walls, under furniture, or in ceiling corners hunting for insects.

Whitetail Spider

Typically found in cool, moist environments both outdoors and indoors. Outdoors, they might be found under bark, leaves, or rocks, while indoors, they can be encountered in bedding, clothes on the floor, and behind furniture, hunting other spiders.

Wolf Spider

These spiders are ground-dwellers and can be found in a variety of habitats, including gardens, forests, grasslands, and suburban areas. They do not spin webs but hunt for prey on the ground.

Orb Weaving Spider

These spiders are often found in gardens, meadows, and wooded areas. They build their large, circular webs in spaces where they can catch flying insects, such as between plants or trees, near light sources that attract prey, and across pathways.

Blackhouse Spider

Prefer dark and secluded areas, often found in window frames, under eaves, in brickwork, and around foliage. They build their webs in sheltered, stable structures.
