Seen a spider in your home? You could be in danger.
If a spider has created a nest or a web in your home, chances are it will try to breed, and when it does, you can expect it to give birth to hundreds of tiny spiders that can crawl through the smallest gaps to completely infiltrate your home!
And unlike other household pets, there are several species of NSW spider that can do you and your family serious harm. Some can even kill! Read below to find out which of Sydney's most common spiders are a danger to you and your family.
But if you haven't got time to read the below, remeber this: it's always best to leave any spider you find in your home or garden well alone, and call pest control experts like us, to get rid of your problem safely.
We're the spider control experts
Sydney is home to a variety of creepy, scary, and in some cases, deadly spiders. Redback, funnel-web, trap door, white tailed, huntsman, tarantula, mouse and recluse, are just a few of the species that are most common in Sydney. They vary in their size, venom toxicity and aggressiveness, but they all have one thing in common: they are most often found in Sydney's urban and suburban homes. This is because as carnivores, they find a good supply of food and space to burrow and weave webs in these areas.
Most spiders prefer to stay hidden rather than live out in the open, but there are some species, most notably the redback, which is characteristically very aggressive. Commonly found in mailboxes, toilets, under floorboards, in roof spaces, and in garages and sheds, the redback has a bite that is powerful enough to cause nausea, vomiting, convulsions, and in severe cases, even loss of consciousness and collapse. Australia Wide First Aid advise anyone bitten by a redback to be transported to the nearest emergency medical help for treatment, and go to hospital for antivenom if necessary.
But the redback, although aggressive, is not the most venomous spider that lives in homes across Sydney. The most deadly spider in NSW, and possibly the world, is the funnel web spider, which burrows in dark, humid, sheltered places. They are often found in backyards, swimming pools and garages. Funnel-web spiders can also be very aggressive when they feel threatened, and will inject their venom using large, powerful fangs. So if you suspect you've seen a funnel-web, stay well clear!
Another spider that can be found across suburbs of Sydney is the mouse spider, which has a venom which is almost as strong as that of the deadly funnel-web, although the good news is that they tend to be more lethargic and less aggressive than redbacks and funnel-webs. However, the problem is that unlike most spiders, which are nocturnal, mouse spiders are most active during the daytime, which means you're more likely to cross paths with one!
Perhaps the most feared, spider in New South Wales is also the least dangerous to humans - the huntsman spider. They are larger than most spiders, and can reach a width of 15cm - that's 6 inches. Despite their terrifying appearance, huntsman spiders are often beneficial around the home, as they eat smaller insects that would otherwise become pests.
But it's very important to treat any spider as if it were highly aggressive and toxic. Without carefully studying spiders, it's impossible to tell just how dangerous the spider you have just seen is. So to be on the safe side, you're better off calling a professional pest control company, like us, ServiceNOW.
