The Best Ways to Keep Spiders under Control in Your Building

Spiders are some of the creepiest creatures in existence. Just the sight of those 8 furry legs, beady eyes, and sharp fangs are enough to send a chill down your spine. But now wisecracks claim that you will eat approximately 8 spiders in your sleep in your life.

What is really scary about spiders though, is their bite. Many of these creatures are venomous and their bites can cause agony, terrible scarring or can even result in death if you get bitten by the wrong type.

What Spiders to Fear in Australia

In Australia, we have quite a few venomous spiders to look out for. The 5 most venomous spiders include the following:

  • Trapdoor spiders – cause localised pain, nausea, lethargy and malaise.
  • The Mouse spider – Found outdoors all over Australia and is very venomous
  • Redback spider – These are life-threatening to children and are responsible for about 2000 bites every year
  • Funnel-web spider – This is the second most venomous spiders in Australia and is typically found in Queensland and Northern New South Wales
  • Sydney Funnel Web spider – This is the most toxic and venomous spider in Australia with fangs bigger than those of brown snake. These fangs can easily bite through toenails. Their venom attacks your nervous system and alters the function of all organs.

While these are the worst of spiders in Australia, I think that we can all agree that all of these creatures are pretty scary and you just don’t want them in your house. Spiders are not just venomous and dangerous, they can also spin annoying webs that can make your prebuilding seem untidy.
