Spider Pest Control
Common spiders found in Western Australia include:
- Redback spiders
- Wolf spiders
- Trapdoor spiders
- Black house spiders
- Huntsman spiders
- Funnel web spiders
- White-tailed spiders
- Daddy long-legs
Australia is home to over 2,000 species of spiders, including some of the world’s deadliest species. But contrary to popular belief, most types like the Wolf spider are quite harmless and, if bitten, will only cause minor symptoms. Despite their scary appearance, they play a significant role in maintaining the balance of our ecosystem. They also provide a form of pest control as they feed on insects around the home.
Nonetheless, a spider infestation on a residential or commercial property can still be a cause for concern. Especially, if you have venomous spiders which can threaten the safety of your family or employees. That’s where Bug Buster’s pest management technicians come in.
Do you remove cobwebs?
It’s best to leave webs up prior to a spider treatment as this gives our techs an idea of the areas where spiders are present. The webs also help in the treatment of spiders as the chemical remain on the webs when the spiders come out. We won’t re-attend to remove webs but recommend homeowners to clean webs up about 2 weeks after a treatment.
How do you know if you have a spider infestation?
It’s paramount to first identify the potential places that a spider infestation can occur in your home. Common places to look for spiders and webs include:
Dark and often damp places are where spiders will most likely hideout and make a home as it provides easy access to a food supply of ants, flies, or other insects.
