Spiders like hiding in cracks and crevasses during the day coming out at night to hunt for food and to spin their webs. Australia is home to over 2,000 species of spiders including some of the most dangerous spiders in the world. While not all of them are venomous its often hard to tell – that’s why Premier1 would recommend leaving spider control to us!

How to avoid SPIDER BITES

If you’re bitten by a spider, call an ambulance, first of all, and then wash around the bite. Don’t bother with bandages as the pressure could increase your pain. Apply an icepack and keep as still as possible until anti-venom is administered at the hospital. To avoid spider bites:


  1. Wear gloves and shoes when gardening or cleaning out storage areas.
  2. Use a stick (not your hands) to remove any abandoned spider webs.
  3. Shake out shoes before putting them on.
