You must trim down the branches that are over or against your home. Spiders generally gain access through leafy walkways.

So keep the bushes well pruned and the garden clean to reduce shelter for both spiders and the insects that they feed on.

Specialised equipment are needed to treat them effectively. These equipment pieces are generally present with any reputed business offering pest control in Belrose. Web spiders like Daddy Long Legs are mostly found in windows, cornice areas, furniture hollows, etc. Sprays and dust are the most widespread treatments used for getting rid of them.

Have you been bitten by a spider?

A spider bite is a rare case in Australia. But if anyhow you get bitten by a venomous spider, it would affect your body within 30 minutes. In case you have been bitten by a redback or a funnel-web, make sure that you keep your body in a static position and not elevate the bitten area. Do not try to squeeze or press the wound, as this will only disperse the poison to different parts of your body. The most prudent thing that you can do is tie a tight bandage around the entire limb. However, if it is a redback, do not try to cover or wrap the wound.
