There are more than 35,000 species of spiders that can be found all over the world with a few thousand of them found right here in Australia. They come in a wide range of sizes and colours and can be easily recognized by their 8 legs. Spiders can be beneficial for the environment mainly because they eat many types of insects, including the ones that are pests.
If there is a build-up of spiders in and around your property then that would suggest that a proper pest treatment has not been done at the property for quite some time.

Here’s how our treatment works

The spray that our experts use to eradicate spiders is also applicable for other pests like beetles, large cockroaches, bees and wasps, silverfish, and creamy coloured crickets.

The dust method and the spray that we use not only provide relief from the current infestation but it also provides long-term protection because residual protection is formed.

Let’s say that you are having an issue with redback spiders or white tail spiders. Then internally we would go ahead with using smoke bombs as the general rule is that one must spray a spider directly in order to eradicate them.
The fumigation process that we use can get into places the normal spray will not be able to get into such as beneath the couches, cluttered rooms, and behind heavy or hard to move cabinets.

(NOTE: If you are living in an area where there are ground spiders then treatments for this type of spider might need to be done on a regular basis. This is because the spider needs to come into contact with the chemical directly for it to die.)

Some areas of the property where we carry out the treatments

Roof: Our experts make the use of a dust gun to spray the roof cavity with powder or dust.

Internal: An internal barrier spray is applied to the skirting boards throughout the entire house and every room is treated with this spray. Our experts might also apply dust to any crevices or cracks within the house.

As mentioned above, if you have redback spiders or whitetail spiders then our technicians will let off additional smoke bombs.

Sub Floor: Here our experts will spray powder or dust into the area under the house.

External: Spray is applied to the following areas:

  • Windows
  • Gutters
  • Fascia
  • Garages and sheds
  • Pathways and fence lines
  • Laundry
  • Weep holes
  • Cracks and crevices

If you have problems with ground spiders then our experts will apply chemicals to all external ground areas as a blanket spray.

Finally, it is important to remember here that not all types of spiders will receive the same type of treatment and you will need to consult with our experts at Killex Pest Control about the type of spider that you are having issues with. Call us today to know more.
