Here Come the Summer SpidersIf you're looking forward to warmer weather and spectacular sunsets, there's also a downside of the Perth summer. Young spiders born in the springtime are now at their most active and finding their way into homes to hunt and lay eggs for the next generation.
If you're worried about a spider infestation in your home, it's important to take action now before the situation gets harder to control.
Are spiders dangerous?
Perth and Western Australia are home to some of the world's deadliest spiders. We don't have the infamous funnel-web spider here, but redback spider bites are potentially deadly and other venomous species such as trapdoor spiders also pose dangers to households, especially those with young children and nosy pets.
Even when they're not life threatening, spider bites can be very painful, so it's important to have reliable spider control in place. These measures need to be planned carefully, as spiders are a valuable part of the ecosystem, serving as nature's pest control for mosquitoes and other common pests.
How to avoid a spider infestation
It's not possible to fully spider-proof your property without help from a professional pest control service, but you can restrict their access by making sure windows, doors and screens aren't left open and sealing up cracks.
Spiders will seek shelter wherever they can, so regular cleaning of all rooms, garages and outdoor areas is necessary to keep their numbers down and stop them from settling in. Also make sure to check clothing, bedding and shoes before use.
If you have a more serious spider problem, or you just want peace of mind, it's recommended that you arrange a professional spider inspection once a year. This is best done in the spring or early summer to clear any existing infestations and set up appropriate prevention measures to stop them from coming back.
Since spiders mainly eat small insects, keeping on top of other pest control services will also mean you're not attracting spiders to your home.
