As well as controlling any spiders that we spray directly, the spray leaves residual insecticide on the surface of treated areas. When the spiders crawl across the surface, they pick up the insecticide and die.
Our spider control treatments include a 6 month warranty on redback, funnel web and white tail spiders
(However, it is important to carry out our spider prevention tips – see bottom of page)
No treatment is 100% effective on hunting or running spiders, such as huntsman and white tail spiders. This is because they tend to walk on the very tips of their legs, allowing them to walk over treated surfaces without picking up sufficient insecticide.
BUT our spider treatment also has an indirect impact on hunting spiders. Our treatment can control black house spiders, a favourite food of white tail spiders and the treatment also has a general pest control effect, reducing the level of all insects around your home. With little food about the number of hunting spiders around your home will be dramatically reduced!

Seek medical attention immediately if you think you’ve been bitten by a funnel web or redback.
There is no evidence that white-tail spider bite cause ‘flesh eating’ sores – it’s a myth!
The male funnel web spider goes wandering in late summer/autumn, looking for a mate. If they find their way into your home, this is when you may get bitten.
The male funnel web bite is more toxic than the female.
Don’t pick a spider out of your pool with your hands. A funnel web spider can live for over 24 hours underwater with air trapped under it’s body hairs.
