Admit it, no one likes spiders! Some are poisonous, some cause cobwebs, but all are unsightly and unwanted in our homes and offices.
Removing Spiders from your home and workplace
None of our indigenous NZ spiders are considered dangerous, however many people have a fear of spiders and they can be a particular pest in the home and workplace. Generally the spider’s web is more of a nuisance than the spider itself but large infestations can prove extremely difficult to control without professional help.
Most spiders in New Zealand are harmless, but the Katipo, Redback and White-tailed spiders can be harmful and should be avoided.
Redback and Katipo spider bites are rare, however, if you suspect you have been bitten by a katipo or Redback spider it is advised that you seek urgent medical attention. Do not panic as serious reactions are uncommon and hospitals are able to provide safe and effective treatment.
The more common White-tailed spider bites are not considered poisonous to humans but can be painful. The initial pain, swelling and redness usually subsides after a few hours with no long-lasting effects.
