Spiders - Pest Control Brisbane

Queensland is host to many varieties of spiders.  Most spider species have a harmless bite and some do not bite at all.  There are however some extremely dangerous spider species in the Brisbane area, these include the redback spider, the funnel web spider, the mouse spider, trap door spiders, white-tailed spiders and other species of spiders.

While most spiders are harmless, they can cause mild discomfort if bitten by one.  Common non-venomous spiders include the huntsmen spider, house spider, daddy long legs spiders, and other various species.  Whilst these spiders generally do not attack unless cornered or approached, they tend to scuttle to safety and avoid confrontation if possible.

Non-venomous spiders, although not dangerous, cause untidiness with their webs, leaving your home, office or building cluttered and unkept looking.  Dangerous spiders, however, are a major concern for humans, as they can cause excruciating pain, convulsions, loss of consciousness and sometimes death, especially in small children.

Redback spiders are common throughout the warmer months of the year as well as the cooler months.  Females are dark or black coloured and can be identified by a red hourglass figure or stripe on their back or upper portion of their body and are much larger than their male counterparts.  Males are much smaller and are light brown with white markings, they lack the red stripe and are non-venomous.

The funnel web spider is possibly the deadliest known spider on the planet.  They are less commonly found in Queensland, but a few venomous species do reside in southern Queensland.  These spiders release a powerful venom that attacks the central nervous system.  They can be aggressive if cornered or provoked.  They like damp dark places and eat small mammals and insects.  They are mostly black to brown in colour and have large fangs that can penetrate fingernails or toenails.
