Spiders Found In Canberra

The world is home to some 35 000 species of spiders, and Australia has some of the deadliest right here at home. Canberra is no exception to this with Redback, White Tail and Wolf spiders, to name a few. Here’s some more information on Spiders common to the ACT.

Redback Spiders

Redback Spiders are venomous and are commonly found in the Canberra and Queanbeyan region. They’re especially common during the warmer months and often make themselves at home.

A bite from a Redback is extremely toxic and in some cases, can be fatal.

The Red-back Spider is a common sight in the Canberra region.
Australia is home to the White-Tail spider, a pesky critter we treat for.

White-Tail Spiders

Also common to the Canberra region is the White Tail Spider. White Tail spiders may cause nausea and vomiting and bites can leave an itchy, burning lump. A white tip at the end of their tail can identify these spiders.

If you spot these pests in the home, give Armageddon Pest Control a call.

Wolf Spiders

Wolf Spiders are poisonous, and their bite is painful, but they are not deadly.

In fact, there are 200 specifies of Wolf spiders in Australia and they are often mistaken for the Funnel-web spider. It’s a good idea to keep an eye out for Wolf Spiders after rain; that’s when they’ll move inside.

Wolf Spiders are poisonous critters found in and around the home.
While non-toxic, the Huntsman Spider might not be a welcome guest in your Canberra home.

Huntsman Spiders

Huntsman Spiders are common in Canberra but are non-toxic. Their bite can be painful, but they are generally not dangerous. They grow quite large and move around at night time.

You should consult a qualified, licensed pest control operator if huntsman spiders are found in your home.
