PEST CONTROL AUCKLAND SPIDERS

Spiders extermination Sanderingham

There are two types of pest Spiders in Auckland. Firstly the orb ( web spinning) spiders.  The second is the wandering spiders e.g. white tails. These spiders do not build webs and wander around looking for food. White tails are unusual in that they feed on other spiders. So if you have lots of orb spiders, you will have white tails spiders too.

Six interesting facts in spiders

1/ All spiders produce silk

Something common to all 40,000 species of spiders is that they all spin silk. And as spiders have evolved, so has their ability to work with silk. One spider can produce up to seven different types, each used for a different purpose such as spinning webs or capturing prey.

2/ One species is mostly vegetarian

It was thought that all spiders were carnivorous, capturing and eating other insects, but one species in Central America has been found to be mostly herbivorous! Bagheera kiplingi inhabit trees that produce protein-rich buds on their leaves. These buds are part of a symbiotic relationship between the trees and ants, but B. kiplingi also benefit from consuming the buds. However, during dry seasons these spiders are known to be carnivorous. They may cannibalize each other or steal ant larvae when food is scarce.

3/ Spiders are nearsighted

Most spiders have eight eyes, but some, like the brown recluse spider, only have six. Spiders typically have a main set that can create images while the secondary sets can only detect light and shadow. It is thought that the secondary sets of eyes are derived from the compound eyes of a common ancestor to both spiders and insects.

But even with all of those eyes, spiders cannot see far into the distance. Nearsightedness is a problem for people, but the habits of spiders are such that being nearsighted isn't a deficiency. They wait for prey to get caught in their webs and use silk trip wires to warn of approaching predators.

4/ Females can lay up to 3,000 eggs at one time

These eggs are housed in one or more silk sacs. The level of care a female spider provides for her young varies by species. Some females will die shortly after laying eggs while others will carry spiderlings on their backs or share prey with them.

5/ Jumping spiders can jump up to 50x their own length

When hunting or trying to escape a predator, jumping spiders are able to make very agile movements and jump multiple times their body length. This is possible due to an internal hydraulic system. Jumping spiders can alter the pressure of fluids in their legs resulting in a springing motion that propels the spiders forward.

6/ The 'daddy long-legs' you see might not actually be a spider

The nickname 'daddy long-legs' has been given to several different pests, only one of which is an actual spider. Crane flies, harvestmen and cellar spiders are all colloquially identified as 'daddy long-legs.' Only cellar spiders are spiders. Harvestmen are in the arachnid family, but they lack venom and silk glands. Crane flies are agricultural pests with very long legs and the ability to fly.

PEST CONTROL AUCKLAND SPIDER HOW IT WORKS?

STEP BY STEP,  we make it hard for spiders to come back to your place. The first thing we do to identify where the spiders are around your home.

We do a number of things in a spider treatment depending on the type of spider and your situation. These may include

  • Application of chemicals into crack and crevice. This is where orb spiders hide, and makes sure we dont miss any spiders.
  • Interior exterior spray. This prevents access to you home by spiders
  • Surround your house with long acting granules. This stops spider ( and insects) gaining access to your dwelling/business
  • For white tails spiders ( wandering spiders) application of insecticide dust into attic space. This technique is very common in Australia and treats all spiders and insects in your attic

We ask our customers to leave spider webs up for seven days. This  allows any spiders we may have missed to get exposed to the chemicals. We then ask them to use a broom to remove the webs.
