Spider Control Gold Coast
Spider Pest Control
Pesticides don’t work well on spiders. Unlike most insects, spiders don’t habitually clean their mouth with their legs and feet. As a result, they don’t transfer pesticides into their mouths. Spiders also keep their bodies well above the surfaces thanks to their long legs. Therefore, there is little chance of absorbing pesticides from surface contact.
At Eco Pest Control Gold Coast, our professionals are trained and licensed to carry out spider removal. We use environmentally-safe methods and procedures to treat, exterminate, and prevent future spider infestation.
How we treat
Our spider inspection helps us determine the species of spider that is of primary concern. Apart from this, we can identify the conducive conditions that are contributing to the infestation, and specific areas where spider activity is highest.
When we treat spider infestation, we focus on the underside, exterior, and interior of a home or building.
- Underside spider treatment: our technicians check dark and damp places for spiders and signs of their activities. While treating the underside of a building, we will use residual insecticide to kill spiders and other insects it comes in contact with.
- Exterior: we will treat the exterior of your building by sweeping the structure to remove webs and spider egg sacs. We focus on the walkways, fence lines, patios, foundation, and under and around the decks.
- Interior: we use glue boards, insect traps, and spray liquid chemicals in strategic locations to kill spiders. For example, we will spray accessible overhangs, light fixtures, eaves, around windows and doors, etc.
Different spider species live in and around dwellings. Our technicians use insecticide concentrates and aerosols to kill spiders. For example, pyrethrin aerosols kill spiders on contact and flush them out of hiding. We also use insecticide dust for large spider problems. Instead of killing just a few spiders and risking a resurgence, we use methods and products that completely exterminate all spider populations.
Why are they considered pests?
Spiders have a different life cycle compared to other insects. A female spider can lay up to 3,000 eggs, and the embryo undergoes all the larval phases inside the egg sac. As a result, it emerges as a fully developed but tiny spider.
Contrary to popular beliefs, most spiders don’t hurt. But if you are unlucky to have species like the Brown Recluse or Black Widow around you, it may lead to a serious medical complication. Poisonous or not, spiders do bite. Non-poisonous spiders can leave welt-sized abrasions on the skin. In the worst case, the pain and irritation from the bite can cause a serious medical emergency if you don’t treat it.
If you’re concerned about the presence of spiders in your home, there are a few things you can do to reduce their population. First, make sure that all of your windows and doors are closed tightly at night. This will help keep the bugs inside. If you’re unable to get rid of them, consider using a spider deterrent product like Raid or Orkin. Finally, be sure to clean up any webs that form around your property.

How long does a spider live?
The lifespan varies depending on the spider species. However, most spiders live between one to two years.
Where are spiders commonly found?
Spiders prefer to live quiet lives. As a result, they live in dark places like attics and basements. Some spider species seek out moisture, while some prefer the dark parts in your home.
What should I do if a spider bites me?
Most spiders are nuisance pests rather than a health hazard. Nonetheless, contact your primary as their bite reaction varies in people. Symptoms like the following: fever, nausea, localized pain, or necrosis.
