The Truth About the White-tailed Spider in Canberra

Canberra has a fair share of spiders, including redback, the white-tailed spider, and more. But the truth white-tailed spider in Canberra is about to begin.

We get calls from all sorts of people that have creepy crawly problems, and the one that makes people shudder is a spider. There was a woman who saw a huge white-tailed spider in Canberra on her screen doors back and front that was holding her prisoner!

She was late to work as she had a fear that the spider would jump on her as she went through the door. It does not even help customers when we tell them that the spiders they describe is harmless and it helps to eat mosquitos …they want them GONE.

Spiderlings are small baby spiders that are airborne and attach to anywhere they fall, mainly outside but can find their way indoors as well.

White-tailed Spider in Canberra – Top Spider Tip After Treatment:

White-tailed Spider in Canberra

When we come for the general pest treatment or attend spider call outs we will spray our treatment on webs; what many people do is take a broom and get the web down; this is WRONG.

Leave the web in place 3-4 weeks as other spiders will visit the web, and the treatment will kill them as well.

There have been video’s on YouTube of well-meaning people and get a ladder and container to trap the spider. They think that they will creep up on the spider to catch it – don’t forget many spiders have 6-8 eyes, though and can keep an eye on you either through poor sight or vibration.

The video is funny to watch, as the person gets near to the spider container in hand above his head and nearly ready to capture it when the spider jumps on him!

He and the child who is video recording it scream the ladder falls over, and no doubt the man may have even hurt himself. Don’t climb ladders, or you could get hurt!
