Cairns Spider Pest Control
Spiders are an important part of the ecosystem. Areas such as Cattana Wetlands, along the Barron River and Mount Whitfield Conservation Park are teeming with spiders that help control insect numbers. But unfortunately, spiders are also found in homes and businesses in Cairns and across Northern Queensland.
Our technicians regularly treat properties in Portsmith, Mount Sheridan and Smithfield for venomous red back, funnel web or white tip spiders. Don’t risk a bite from a spider, especially if you have pets or children.
While some species are dangerous, many spider species can cause pain or infection. If you have spiders on your property, ask a professional to remove them at the source, so they don’t return.
Which spiders invade homes in Cairns?
Spiders can live in webs, burrows or no webs at all. Daddy Long Legs are common webbing spiders in many homes in Cairns. Another webbing spider we come across regularly is the Black House Spider. Webbing spiders love window frames, curtain rails and cornice areas. These spiders may not be dangerous, but their webs are annoying.
Huntsman and Wolf Spiders can appear suddenly on your wall. That’s because they hunt for prey in crevices or corners of a room, instead of trapping insects in a web.
Another group of spiders found around swimming pools and in gardens across Cairns are burrowing spiders. Funnel Web and Trap Door spiders tend to stay outside. If you have kids that like to dig in the dirt or pets, it’s best to call a professional to rid your yard of these nasties.
Why spiders are bad for business
Some people are scared of spiders. Not only can spiders affect workplace productivity, but they can also turn away clients. Spider webs on shopfront windows can make your business look shabby. And, clearing webs away each morning costs you time better spent elsewhere.
If a spider bites one of your employees or customers, your business reputation could be tarnished or it could even cost you a fortune in legal fees.
How to keep spiders away from your home or business
Here are some tips to keep spiders out of your home or business.
- Cut back branches from the property
- Remove material stacked around the boundary, such as bricks, wood or spare roof tiles
- Declutter your shed
- Regularly clean your house to deter insects
- Remove spider webs as soon as you see them
If the thought of spiders in your home or workplace gives you the shivers, don’t hesitate to call our professional technicians. Webbing, burrowing and other spiders need to be treated differently, due to their environment and behaviour.
If you suspect you have spiders, don’t try to get rid of them yourself. Call (07) 4015 3035 and get your home inspected by a professional.
