Australia's hot summer heat attracts Cockroaches and Hordes of Huntsman Spiders!

Hordes Of Huntsman Spiders

Huntsman spiders are large, fast spiders that live in hot or warm climates throughout the world. They are named for the way that they catch their prey. 

Because of their size, huntsman spiders are sometimes incorrectly identified as tarantulas. One way to tell a huntsman from a tarantula is by the position of the creature’s legs. Most spiders’ legs bend vertically under the body. 

Huntsman spiders usually have legs that are splayed out to the sides, crablike. In fact, huntsman spiders are also referred to as giant crab spiders.

I saw this recent article and it did make me sit up and take notice as we have also seen in Canberra a rise in the number of pests that continue to re-surface again.

  • A hot, dry summer is set to bring out increasing numbers of insects and spiders
  • Expert says insects are more active and breed faster in warmer temperatures
  • Parts of Australia are already experiencing high volumes of redback spiders
  • The nation is set to experience hot days and nights over the coming months

Australia is bracing for a scorching hot summer but it will not be just the warm weather residents will have to contend with.

Bugs and spiders will be out in increasing numbers as they take advantage of the sweltering conditions. ‘Insects don’t control their own body temperature, that’s done by the ambient temperatures,’ Mr Peters said.

‘The warmer it is, the more active insects are and the faster they breed. Heat and humidity will certainly affect their populations.

You also need to add ants to the list of annoying pests that will not seem to go away and usually there is a reason behind this is the fact that there could be an ants nest that has yet to be discovered that needs to be destroyed to stop the ants.

This is where a professional company like A1 Pest Control Canberra can help you beat YOUR pest problem whether domestic or commercial properties we can do it all for you.


summertime pests

There is a pest present in every season and summer heat attracts pests to invade in your home.

Some pests enjoy the heat of summer. Some prefer the spring weather. And some might invade your house to escape the cold winter. But the most problematic are those common pests that are active for most of the year. Here are some of the common pests that are active in each season.

Our pest control technicians will provide you with high-risk locations in your area that you can check regularly. Keep those areas clean from any dead pests since they can attract other pests and might start another infestation again.

Give it 4 weeks to 2 months for the general pest control treatment to do its job. The number of pests will definitely be reduced after the application of the chemicals. But it might need another visit to eliminate these pests, especially cockroaches, ants and bed bugs, since they are difficult infestations.
