Spiders

Complete Pest Control use specific products that are very low in toxicity to humans but are extremely effective for long term spider control.

What are spiders?

Spiders are the most widely distributed venomous creatures in Australia, with an estimated 10,000 species inhabiting a variety of ecosystems. But even though spiders live around us, from our urban centres to the bush, bites are infrequent.

Spider venom contains a cocktail of chemicals, some of which can be harmful to humans – but humans are not really the intended victims. Spider venom is designed for small prey and delivered in small quantities that, while often fatal to tiny creatures, can be handled by bigger organisms. When injected to a horse, for instance, spider venom triggers the animal’s immune system to produce antibodies to fight the effect of the toxin.

Protect your property from spiders with Complete Pest Control

Chances are if you live in Adelaide, you’ve seen your fair share of spiders crawling around. While they play an important role in the environment, spiders need to know their place. Not only are their webs a nuisance (especially if you walk right through them), but some spiders like Funnelwebs and Redbacks can also be harmful if they happen to nip you.
