Common Spiders Found In The Home


This spider is a large flat bodied spider that is common to see around the house. Unlike other spiders, the huntsman does not build webs, it simply hunts and forages for food. So you’ll usually see if running around your house in search of it’s next meal. While it’s bite is poisonous to humans and is extremely painful, it is not fatal.


This spider typically lives in and around the house and hides in dry, sheltered places, such as sheds, mailboxes and dog kennels. You can recognise a redback spider by it’s distinct red stripe on the back of it’s black body. The bite of a redback is extremely serious and can cause severe pain. A redback eats small snakes, insects and frogs.


Unlike the redback which loves dry environments this spider is found in cool dark places, such as in garden mulch. It’s bite can cause swelling and itchiness. This spider is generally a dark red or grey colour with orange banded legs.

Allrid’s spider pest control service starts with an inspection of the premises to determine the extent of the problem. If required, Allrid will commence with the application of insecticide to eliminate the spiders present and leave a residual protective barrier to protect from future spider infestation. This spider treatment will be effective for up to six months.
