Spider Pest Control

Spider Control

If only all spiders were as content to live outside as Incy Wincy, the world would be a better place. Unfortunately, this is not the case, especially when it rains. Spiders, like us, seek shelter. Sadly, for most, they can be frightening creatures. Physical barriers alone are ineffective since some spiders can pass past them.

At Eco Pest Control Melbourne, we protect residential and commercial properties from spiders and protect your health and reputation.

How To Treat


Spiders are unsanitary to keep around as they spread infections and dangerous diseases. Apart from this, they are bothersome to get rid of, and their webs are a pain to deal with. Our inspectors will trace spider activities and detect the extent of an infestation. We will also examine visible and hidden parts of your home, including the ceilings, floorboards, walls, and other parts outside a property.


While home cures are the safest alternative, you may need to adopt tried and tested procedures in the event of a large infestation.

  • Herbal insecticide, or herbal insecticide, is a type of pesticide that kills all bugs and insects, including spiders.
  • Another option is to vacuum the house regularly. This will draw the spider webs into your vacuum bags.

We will recommend the best treatment procedures after determining the spider species and the extent of the infestation.


The only way to exterminate spiders is to seek expert advice. If you have more than two or three spiders in your home, you should hire an exterminator to search down and destroy all of the creepers.

Why are they considered pests?

Spiders generally eat insects, smaller spiders, and other prey that they can catch. Since they can’t chew, they use digestive enzymes in their saliva to kill their prey before eating it. Because their stomachs are so small, spiders ingest their food in minute portions.

While spiders do not feed on humans, if they feel threatened, they may bite. Certain spiders have venom that has varying effects based on the species and the individual’s health. For example, a spider bite might cause a stinging sensation, swelling, or redness in the bite site, which may necessitate hospitalization. If you can, avoid touching spiders, but call us at Eco Pest Control Melbourne for extermination.

Common Species in the city

In Australia, there are different kinds of spiders that help to protect our environment by devouring insect pests. Unfortunately, the idea that spiders are deadly has been overemphasized, and we have forgotten that just a few spiders are genuinely harmful.

  • The red-back spider is found all over Australia. They prefer to live in dry, sheltered settings and appear to enjoy being among people.
  • Trapdoor spiders are non-aggressive spiders that spend most of their lives in their burrows.
  • Black house spiders are also known for their fondness for weaving webs around window frames.
  • White-tailed spiders are nomadic hunters that hunt inside houses looking for victims.
  • Daddy long-legs: This spider is known for its petite, dainty body and lengthy legs.

Other common species include:

  • Funnel-web spiders
  • Garden orb-weaving spiders
  • Harvestman spider
  • Huntsman spider
  • Mouse spider
  • Red-headed mouse spider
  • Tarantulas
  • Wolf Spiders
  • Tree-funnel web spider

Common Signs of Infestation

Although spiders can assist in reducing other pest populations such as flies and mosquitoes, they should not be permitted to live in your home or business. If you notice any of the indicators of a spider infestation, contact us as soon as possible.

  • Webs: An abundance of webs in or around your property is one of the most definite ways to detect if you have a spider infestation in your home or commercial space.
  • Egg Sacs: Most spiders deposit hundreds of eggs at once, all of which are encased in a silk ball.
  • Excess insects: Because they are a source of food for predatory spiders, these little animals may attract spiders to your home.
  • Physical presence: Spider sightings are, of course, the most telling indicator of a spider infestation.

Treatment Tips and Advice

  • Maintain a clean and orderly environment in your home.
  • Fill up the cracks in your house with caulk.
  • Remove all plants from around your home’s perimeter.
  • Use a pesticide with a long residual effect.
  • Turn off the lights outside.
  • Disperse dichotomous earth throughout your home.
  • Use natural oils and vinegar, or use nuts to drive them crazy!
  • To keep pests out, use screens.
  • Use insecticide from the store. It creates a barrier that keeps spiders away or kills them.
  • Clean your counters and tables regularly.
  • Get rid of the clutter. It provides a hiding place for them.


  • What’s the best way to keep spiders out of my house?

First and foremost, make sure your home is well-sealed. Next, look for webbing spiders inside and outside your house and remove them with a vacuum.

  • Where are spiders commonly found?

Spiders prefer dark places such as basements and attics. Some species of spiders are particularly drawn to moisture, while others seek out dry areas.
