Stop Feeling Webbed with the Best Spider Control in Melbourne
Spiders are one of the most dangerous arachnids that one can ever encounter. There are a whopping 35,000 species of spiders recorded so far worldwide. They are a threat to health and property as they are one of the most vicious mites one can encounter in their office, yard or home. It is, therefore, crucial to get spider control in Melbourne done as soon as you spot these dangerous creatures. Spiders not only dwell on walls but mark their spaces with webs that hold their prey hostage.
Spiders enter through the small cracks and holes in the walls and tend to make their home in the following areas
- Open gaps in windows
Spiders leave no stone unturned in laying their eggs all over, making it very hard to get rid of them entirely despite regular cleaning. Some of the commonly found species of spiders that harass Australians are the black and brown house spider, hunter spider, wolf spider, cellar spider and more.
The major types of spiders found in Melbourne are as follows:
- The Whitetail Spider
The whitetail spider has a long cigar-shaped body with a white tip on its tail. It is usually found inside homes at floor levels hiding under household & office articles and on clothes. These are dangerous spiders with females of up to 20mm in size and male up to 12mm in size.
- Wolf Spiders
Wolf spiders are usually identical to the whitetail spider, but they do not have the white tip. Wolf spiders do not spin webs but chase and pounce their insect prey like wolves.
- Huntsman Spider
Huntsman spiders are more enormous and move fast. They tend to show aggressive behaviour when provoked. They are often seen on walls, ceilings and moving around gardens in search for food source.
- The Black House Spider
This specie of spider builds a lot of messy and disorganised webs. The bulky spider builds its webs around dark corners and cavities that are found near windows, sheds, fences and under eaves.
- Redback Spider
The Redback spiders, also known as Australian black widow, are highly dangerous species with females up to 14mm in size and males up to 3 mm. They have a pea-shaped body with the iconic red or orange strip down the back. This kind of spider builds its web throughout garbage, furniture and potted plants.
At Tradie Team Pest Control, our spider control in Melbourne is an effective process that can be carried out in both residential and commercial properties. Our experts suggest the following ways that would assist in spider control
- Direct Contact
Harmful spiders can be exterminated by direct contact using pest control chemicals and then eradicating their webs to avoid their return.
Harmless spiders should be usually caught individually and placed them back in their original habitat.
- Cobweb Destruction
Applying chemicals on cobwebs would not affect the spiders as their claw-like legs do not absorb any chemicals. Manual destruction of the cobwebs is highly recommended.
