Why do I have them?
Spiders are predatory insects that can move indoors, especially during the cooler months of the year, to find secure areas to build their webs. They primarily live outside in protected areas in gardens, around windows and doors, or under eaves where light will attract prey. Spiders prefer to feed on small flies, mosquitoes and other invertebrate insects. Inside, you will find their webbing strung in roof cavities, subfloors, garages, sheds, barns, warehouses, in corners and closets, under furniture, or along joints where the wall meets the ceiling.
Are they dangerous?
How do I get rid of spiders?
Spiders are opportunistic pests that generally will only enter into your property if there is an easy means of doing so. You can help to control interior spider populations from the exterior by keeping shrubs and bushes trimmed away from the exterior of the property, as well as sealing any holes or cracks around doors, windows, and basements. Calling NZ Pest Control is the best way to ensure your property is kept free of nuisance pests.
Can I do it myself?
While there are some Do-It-Yourself spider control products on the market, they are generally ineffective unless proper, continued maintenance is carried out.

How can I prevent spiders returning in the future?
Ensure that the building is in good physical condition, and properly screened and sealed to reduce entry. Keep the premises clean and tidy, and free of debris such as boxes, papers, clothing, timber piles, etc. Keep the grass mowed to 7.5 cm or less, and trim back any vegetation in contact with the structure. Change the lighting to building locations, from mercury vapour to sodium vapour lamps, or in the case of homes, changing the bulbs near the entrances to yellow bulbs. Removal of insects that spiders feed on. Mechanical removal of spiders, webs, and egg sacs with a vacuum, both inside and outside of the premises.
