Spider Extermination Services

There are many species of spiders in Australia. In fact, Australia is home to some of the deadliest spiders on earth. If a person is bitten by a funnel web spider, for instance, they can be dead within 40 minutes. These spiders lurk in dark corners of properties and are a serious hazard to you and your family. A spider extermination service operates to get rid of these spiders using appropriate measures to ensure the safety of everyone. They have equipment and supplies to kill even the deadliest spiders and will do so in a short amount of time so you don't have to vacate your property for long. These spider control treatments are short-term and will need to be repeated periodically. The main aim of these treatments is to put a break on the life cycle of spiders so that it takes longer for this issue to occur. 

Methods used to control spiders

The methods used must not aim to completely eradicate all spiders. This is because spiders are an important part of the eco-system. They help to control insect populations to maintain a balance. It is important that spider exterminations services do not disturb this balance.

Spiders can be categorised into two main types, hunting spiders and webbing spiders. Both types can be dangerous and respond to different treatment methods. 

Webbing spiders: Normally the food supply may be reduced to starve the spiders. This can be done by other pest control practices such as mosquito and fly control. Chemical sprays are also used to kill the visible spiders. Additionally, all visible webs are removed to prevent anyone from walking into them. These methods work together to allow effective control of webbing spiders. 

On the other hand, crawling or hunting spiders are killed on the spot using chemical sprays and this is the most effective measure. Some spiders may also be captured and released back into their habitat to prevent them from breeding indoors. 

Spider extermination services

Professional spider exterminators have extensive knowledge about various species of spiders — especially those that can be found indoors. Using this knowledge and specialist equipment, they access all parts of your property to carry out their extermination services. They will also come back as soon as you spot any spiders to eradicate them to ensure that your home is safe.

You need to ensure that you call professionals who have experience in the eradication of spiders, so make sure you do your research!
