The Best Way to Deal with a Spider Infestation
Spiders are some of the most common pests that you can find in your house. Not only are these pests very troublesome, but some species can be unhygienic as well. There are many indicators that you may need the assistance of a professional Spider Control Sydney expert. You may be dealing with a spider infestation if you spot these signs:
- Spider webs around your home.
- Small burrows and holes in your gardens around your house
- Other insects and pests that spiders may use as a food source
- Eggs and silk sacs on webs that are fixed on the surfaces of your house
Spiders typically inhabit small dark spaces or areas where there is little to disturb them such as attics, or at the junctions where the walls meet the ceiling. Check moist spaces like basements as well.
Spider Control- Why Is It Important?
Spiders are known to inhabit dark and small places like attics or ceilings. They are most active during autumn when the temperature cools down as it is their mating season. Typically, most breeds of spiders are harmless and actually prove to be useful as they prey upon other insects present in your home and somewhat manage pest control.
However, there are a few venomous species that are extremely dangerous and can be deadly. This is when you need to hire professionals like the ones at Forensic Pest Control. Some of these deadly species include:
- The Funnel-Web Spider– Known for its aggressiveness, this is one of the world’s deadliest spider species and should be left undisturbed. It can be identified by its large black body and long front fangs.
- Australian Red- Back Spider- This spider is known for its excruciatingly painful bite and is fatal to very young children and the elderly. The spider can be identified by its black body & red markings on the back.
- The White- Tail Spider- This spider bite can cause swelling and severe pain all around the bite spot. However, this isn’t really deadly unless the person develops an allergic reaction to its venom.
The white-tail spider – It can cause severe swelling and pain around the bite area but isn’t deadly unless the victim suffers an allergic reaction to the venom. This spider can be identified by its elongated abdomen and tiny white spots on its back.
