When threatened, funnel web spiders may become highly violent. The Funnel Web Spider, which carries one of the most powerful poisons, is among the most lethal spiders in the world. They are known to penetrate homes in search of a partner and to burrow in moist, protected areas.
Redback spiders hide in dry, protected areas like garden buildings and mailboxes. The majority of dangerous bites occur in females. Red back spiders may be recognised by the red stripe on the back of their black bodies, as suggested by their name. They pack a nasty bite that has caused multiple deaths in humans in the past which is why we encourage everyone to be cautious when cleaning up or gardening around the house. Most redback spider bites occur while people are disturbing a redback spider while going about the standard household chores.
White tail spiders are predators that prowl at night in both urban and rural settings, preferring cold, wet environments like garden mulch. They often have dark red or grey legs with dark orange bands. They have a nasty reputation for issuing necrotic ulcers which causes fears amongst many Australians.
Mouse spiders are usually found in burrows and near waterways. They are often mistaken for the Funnel Web Spider but can be distinguished by their pronounced compact, squat and huge fang sheaths at the front of the head area.
Easily recognisable by their eight legs, some happily tolerate the presence of spiders whilst others simply cannot bear the thought of them. Professional spider control is an option for those with a real fear of spiders, but also those who struggle with large or repeated spider infestations.
