Did you know that around the world, there are over 35,000 different species of spiders with a few thousand of those found in Australia – including some of the world’s most dangerous spiders?

Around your home spiders can be a nuisance, they are attracted to small dark spaces that are warm, such as air vents, in the eaves of your home, corners and cracks in the walls. Other species of spiders prefer to live in your outdoor areas making their webs in your gardens, around lighting and in your walkways – walking into an unseen web can be anything from an annoying experience to something terrifying.

How do you know if you have a spider infestation?

Spiders are often found in secluded and dark areas around your home and garden.

  • Some spiders are free-ranging and take refuge in crevices while others burrow into the ground.
  • Look out for spider webs around your home and garden, the shape and size of the web will vary between species, some are funnel shape, while other webs are orb-shaped.
  • There are some species of spiders that are attracted to moist environments including garages, sheds, basements and other damp areas around your home.
  • Spiders also choose to live in cupboards and wardrobes, around storage boxes and in the junctions between a wall and a ceiling.
  • Spiders feed on other insects, and they will prey on flies, ants, other spiders and woodlice. Where ever there is a supply of food, spiders will set up a home and wait for their next meal.

As we head more into autumn and the temperature begins to drop spiders will start looking for a mate and become more active, this means they will be coming out of their hiding places. Towards the end of autumn, many spiders will simply die off while others hibernate until spring.

Spiders will lay their eggs in a silken sac, with approximately 100 eggs in each sac. These sacs may be carried by the female, hidden in the web or fixed to a surface, wall, pot plants etc. If you find signs of a sac or sacs in your home, it means that there will soon be a lot more spiders around.
