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 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.
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 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.
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.
