Spiders are coming, Get a Help from Pest Control Experts


“The ‘itsy bitsy’ spider crawled up the water spout. Down came the rain, and washed the spider out.

 It is used to be a funny song for our cute little babies, but will these spiders still be funny when they actually get inside your house and go near to your baby and cause her painful bites with venom?

As a homeowner, anyone should know how dangerous spiders are. 

Identifying different kinds of Spiders

Spiders are one of Australia’s Most Dangerousarachnid according to Australian Geographic. 

There are many different species of spiders identified here in the country: The Mouse Spider, the Common House Spider, the White-Tailed Spider, the Black House, and Grey House Spiders, the Redback Spider, the Daddy Long Legs Spider, the Garden orb-weaving Spider, the Huntsman Spider, the Wolf Spider, the Saint Andrew’s Cross Spider, the Trap Door Spider, and the Funnel Web Spider

Out of all these kinds of Spiders, the Sydney Funnel Web spider (one of many Funnel Web species) is the deadliest, not only in Australia but also in the world, with its highly toxic venom produced in its large fangs. 

It can attack the human nervous system and alter the functioning of the organs in the human body, all at once. 

Mouse Spider is stout black spiders, often confused with a funnel-web spider with its features are very dangerous too, although its population is not high in the urban areas. 

Black House Spider is a dark robust spider, and Grey House is slightly smaller with grey-brown banded legs and greyish hard upper shell, and are usually found on tree trunks, buildings specifically in window frames and also on rock walls. 

Their webs are lacy silk sheets with funnel-like entrances. These spiders may also be useful in the house as they feed on other household pests such as flies, ants, and bees. 

But they are still capable of bringing danger to humans, with their bites that cause nausea, vomiting, sweating and swelling.  

When you see a spider with whitish tips at its abdomen, it is a White-tailed Spider. This spider also bites humans and may cause long-term skin infections, ulcers, and necrosis.  

Garden Ord-Weavers are reddish-brown or grey with triangular abdomens which have two humps towards the front. 

They are a very common species of spiders which build their webs during the night and usually, we can find them under leaves or twigs. 

When bitten by these weavers, mild pain, swelling and some redness of the skin Thirty (30) minutes to Three(3) hours are some possible effects to humans. 

Common House Spider or American Spider as known internationally, basically can be found in or near houses in secluded areas such as attic windows and/or lose walls. 

This spider bites humans for self-defense only, especially when its web is touched. Their bites are less severe compared with other spiders but still may cause severe pain within Sixteen (16) hours.   

Daddy Long Legs Spider is commonly found in urban areas, in many houses, with skinny long legs but small body. 

This spider tends to create a tangled web in the ceilings, garages, and under wooden furniture of your house, to keep from being seen. 

Some people believe that this spider has the most toxic venom produced since this spider kills and eats other kinds of spiders like Redbacks.      

On the other hand, the Redback spider can cause extremely painful bites and is potentially fatal to humans. 

Abdominal pain, nausea, and feeling sick are some systemic effects that one can experience when bitten by a Redback spider. 

They are usually found in most houses in urban areas since they rely on humans to live. This resulted to many reported spiders’ bites cases caused by Redbacks Spiders every year. 

Other spiders that can be found in urban areas that may cause the same ill-effects are the Wolf spider, Trap door spider, Huntsman spider, and Saint Andrew’s spider. 

Identifying the kind of spiders in your house can be a difficult thing to do, so, as a piece of advice, why not call up for professional help to guide you on what dangers the spiders in your home might bring to your family.  

The Dangers of Spiders

Arachnids or Spiders can be dangerous since they inject venom (after the bite) which contains toxic chemicals. 

These may cause humans to feel sick, nauseated, vomit, have infections on the skin or even to internal organs in severe cases, have some allergies even cause death.

For some people especially kids at an early stage, develop the fear of spiders, or phobia, the so-called “Arachnophobia”. 

This phobia makes them very weak every time they see a spider or even its tangled-web. This causes them to faint after having shortness of breath.  

In April 2016, recorded the first death caused by a spider in Australia since 1981, so clearly, spiders become threats to humans again in the country.

In fact, every year there are Two thousand (2000) people who were bitten by Redback spiders.

Now, summer is fast-approaching, news advised Australians to watch out for the “Deadly Funnel-web spiders”. 

With the recent rains, these spiders are moving and looking for shelter, and they will surely go inside homes
