Pest Control for Spiders

Admit it, no one likes spiders! Some are poisonous, some cause cobwebs, but all are unsightly and unwanted in our homes and offices.

Remove Spiders From Your Home or Workplace

None of our indigenous NZ spiders are actually dangerous to humans. However, many people have a fear of spiders and they can be a particular pest in the home and workplace. These creepy crawlies generally enter a house in the autumn months. This is generally because they need warm and dry places to spend the winter. To prevent your house or workplace becoming a spider’s winter retreat we recommend filling in any gaps in walls and under doors, and keeping sheltering sites like firewood piles and compost piles as far away from your buildings as possible.

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. DIY spider control usually fails to get into all the small and dark corners, cracks and crevices that spiders find to hide.

Spider Bites

Most New Zealand spiders are harmless, but the Katipo, Redback and White-tailed spiders can be harmful and should be avoided.

Although Redback and Katipo spider bites are rare, 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 poisonous to humans, but can be painful. The initial pain, swelling and redness usually subsides after a few hours with no long-lasting effects.

Cockroaches are an unpleasant and unsightly pest and can potentially carry a range of serious illnesses including salmonella, dysentery, gastro-enteritis and typhoid. Their droppings have also been linked with increases in eczema and asthma.

Cockroaches can wreak havoc on your home or office and can enter in many different ways, through cracks and crevices, air vents, drain pipes. They tend to feed on a diet of rotting garbage and/or food scraps. So, for long-term prevention it’s important to try to clean up any food and drink spills as soon as they happen, and keep your house and office tidy. This includes removing rubbish regularly, and storing your food in sealed containers.

Roaches prefer warm, moist and sheltered areas close to food and water, making buildings an ideal breeding ground. Unfortunately, cockroaches are also incredibly resilient and they can survive in extremes of heat and cold. With the ability to reproduce quickly so you shouldn’t disregard the odd cockroach you see around your house. For every one you see there can be many more living in the walls of your home or office.

Controlling Cockroaches

Without the right tools and know how it can be a difficult to control a cockroach infestation. DIY products can be effective in solving smaller cockroach problems, but it can be difficult to reach all of the hiding places with these products.
