Here are some of the more common types of Spiders we remove in Perth, Western Australia.
A White Tail spider, (commonly brought into the home from washing off the line) can cause severe ulceration from a bite. These cigar shaped spiders hunt other spiders such as Redbacks. Because they don't spin webs, they can be difficult to locate around the home.
White Tails can easily move from one side of a house to the other, within a few hours, usually during the night. A White Tail spider bite often goes undetected, often resulting in a lump which may develop an itch.
Redback spiders are the most dangerous common spiders around the Perth Metro area. Not all Redback spiders have the distinctive red zig-zagged stripe around their huge abdomen.
In fact, in the United States, the infamous Black Widow spider is exactly the same spider as the Redback, but without the red stripe. These spiders can cause serious illness or even death. Redback spider webs often crackle when touched and usually have dried leaves around the base of the web.
They are often found in hot dry areas and under furniture, window sills, and children's outdoor toys.
The messiest webs found throughout Western Australian homes belong to the common Black House or Window spider. These often have funnel shaped webs are found under fence capping, around window frames, brick piles and rockeries. A Black House spider bite can lead to headaches and vomiting.
