At Pesti Pest Control we will ensure your backyard is a fun and safe place to be this summer, free from spiders, so you can enjoy a few cold drinks with your mates and family.
You’ve seen them popularised in Hollywood movies but unsurprisingly the humble spider gets more attention than most other creatures in the animal kingdom. If the biggest fear about being bitten by one is that you could transform into Spiderman for a day then that would be the greatest boyhood dream.
So let’s take movies aside for a second.
Truth is Spider bites are an unpleasant experience for any person. So whether you are a young child, adult, or even the family pet the sight of seeing an itchy red stinging spot on your body is enough to cause major concern for anyone.
And even if you don’t get bitten by one just the sight of a Spider crawling around your home is enough to send shivers down the spine of any normally sane person. These eight legged arachnids are always good to bringing out our deepest anxiety and fears.
Perth plays host to some of the most venomous varieties:
The Redback is the most well-known Australian spider and found in all areas except the highest mountains and deep in the ocean.
Only Female bite is dangerous. The venom attacks the central nervous system causing intense pain, profuse sweating, difficulty in breathing, loss of consciousness, violent convulsions and in severe cases finally…Death.”
Since Redbacks rarely leave their web a human body part would have to touch their web directly to be on the receiving end of a bite because of their small jaws most bites are ineffective
Huntsman spiders are those big, hairy, scary, long-legged spiders we often find behind curtains, in the shower cubicle and under the car’s sun visor.
These timid creatures are harmless and will run from humans at lightning fast speeds.
The design of the legs allows the Huntsman to run sideways as well as forward.
Daddy Long-legs An ideal pet to keep in the house as they hunt, kill and eat Redback Spiders, House Spiders, Wolf Spiders and more. They have 3 body sections, not two like spiders, and their legs have seven sections which they can break off to surprise or distract a predator.
3 Things you can do to protect your family from a Spider invasion this summer:
- Before the onset of the hotter months spray under your eaves with a professional surface spray which will flush out spiders out of their hiding places
- Use a cobwebber to remove all webs in your outdoor patio areas and especially garages, pool fences, window frames & under fence capping
- Mix equal parts water and lemon juice in a spray bottle and spray any exposed cracks, door frames, or window frames with the solution.
