WHAT & WHY?
2000 different species of spiders live in Australia, providing beneficial control of insects, both inside and outside of homes.
While all spiders have fangs, only some of them are capable of causing a threat to human life and pets.Some spider bites can be fatal, others can be quite painful, and almost all result in swelling and redness around the bite site.
Spiders predominantly live in the outdoor and garden areas of the property and the roof void, however some species do like to harbour internally.

HOW TO MANAGE SPIDERS
In the winter months spiders tend to retreat to warmer areas so that they can lay their eggs, in the summer they are more active.
