Spider Control Sydney

Australia is home to more than 2,400 species of spiders, some of which can be very dangerous to humans. A lot of these species are found in Sydney as well, where they nest in both urban and rural areas.

As a spider bite can be potentially lethal without an antidote, it is recommended to treat your home against spiders. At Eco Pest Control Sydney, we have the experience to help you guard your home against these trespassers.

How We Treat Spiders

At Eco Pest Control Sydney, we use discreet chemical treatments to kill spiders and drive them away from your home. This includes web clearing treatments, flushing treatments, and many more.

Depending on the circumstances, we may capture and release them in the wild rather than kill them. We will also create a spider-repellent barrier around your home to prevent them from coming back.

Why Spiders Are Considered a Pest

Spiders are considered pests for aesthetic, hygiene, and health reasons. Depending on the spider, its bite can be potentially lethal. Due to the sizes that they often get to in Sydney, they can also be frightening. Most of the spider species in Australia will leave webs all around your home, which can cause your house to be quite messy.

Common Spider Species in Sydney

Sydney, like the rest of Australia, has multiple spider species crawling around. The most common species include:

  • Redback Spider: Directly related to the Black Widow spider, it has a black body, a large belly, and a red streak over its back. It is highly venomous.
  • Sydney Funnel Web Spider: Thick bodies with fangs that can pierce even a toenail. Their venom can be lethal but easily treated with an antidote.
  • White-Tail Spider: They usually feed on other spiders, but can bite humans too. Their bite is usually not lethal, but it’s still painful.
  • Huntsman Spider: Large bodies, but relatively harmless to humans. Their bites result in dull pain and prefer to hide rather than attack.
  • Mouse Spider: Similar in appearance to the Sydney funnel-web spider, but less aggressive. While its venom is potentially lethal, it rarely attacks.

Common Signs of a Spider Infestation

Spider infestations are obvious when you see more than one of these arachnids crawling about. If you keep spotting spiders at every point, they have likely created a nest in your house. If you notice signs of an infestation, you might want to contact us at Eco Pest Control Sydney.

How Do You Know You Have a Spider Problem?

Spider infestations usually have some clear signs. Here is how you know you have a spider problem:

  • Constant sighting of spiders, especially the kind that are potentially dangerous
  • Spider webs that are continuously remade, no matter how often you destroy them
  • Egg sacks, containing eggs that are either hatched or are about to

Treatment Tips and Advice

With the right prevention tips, spiders may be less likely to come into your home. Here are some tips you should keep in mind:

  1. Keep Your Home Clean: A house full of clutter can give spiders plenty of opportunities to hide. Keep your home clean to make it less appealing to them.
  2. Seal Cracks and Crevices: Spiders get in your home through various cracks and crevices you may have around. Use caulk to seal them.
  3. Keep Lights Off: Light attracts pests that can serve as a potential meal to spiders. When not in use, turn the lights off.
  4. Sprinkle Dichotomous Earth: This powder is made from fossil, which cuts and dehydrates the spider. If they walk over it, they will eventually die.
  5. Set Spider Traps: Spiders traps are designed to capture spiders as they walk over the sticky glue. These traps often have spider pheromones, which attract them.
  6. Use Essential Oils: Spiders hate the scent of certain essential oils, such as tea tree, peppermint, eucalyptus, and citrus. You may use a diffuser to constantly spread the smell around.
  7. Use Vinegar: The strong scent of vinegar is offensive to spiders. Mix water with vinegar and use it to clean your floors and home.
  8. Remove Yard Clutter: Yard clutter such as wood, rock, and compost attracts many insects, which ultimately attracts spiders. Remove them to prevent spiders from coming in.
  9. Install Insect Screens: Most insects, including spiders, get into your home through the open window. Install screens to keep them out.
  10. Use Pest Control: Insecticides are very often some of the best ways to deter spiders in the long term. So, call pest control if the problem persists.


  1. How Much Will It Cost Me to Apply Spider Control?

This depends on whether you have an active infestation or just need prevention. The former is around $160, whereas the other costs an average of $35.

  1. How Long Should the Spider Control Last?

Spider control can last between 2-5 years, depending on the treatment used. Yearly inspections are recommended.

  1. Do I Need to Leave the Home After Spider Control?

If you have sensitivity to chemicals, you should leave your home for a few hours until the treatment dries. If you have pets or children, you should also keep them away until the treatment dries.
