Most Common Spiders in Canberra
Canberra is home to a variety of spiders, and it’s important to know the difference. While spiders like the Daddy Long Legs and Huntsmen may look scary, they’re actually harmless to humans. However, there are a few spider species that you should be on the lookout for, including:
These spiders are easily recognisable by their black bodies and distinctive red stripe on the underside of their abdomen. Redbacks are most commonly found in sheds, under furniture, shoes, or cluttered areas.
- Funnel Webs
These spiders are large and black, with distinctive fang-like mouthparts. They are typically found in moist, dark areas such as under logs or in burrows. In homes, they can sometimes be found in basements or wardrobes.
- White-tailed Spider
White-tailed spiders are small, ranging in size from 6 to 10 mm. They are black with a distinctive white stripe down their backs. White-tailed spiders are often found hiding in towel rails, under sinks, and in clothes baskets.
- Black House Spider
Adult black house spiders are typically dark brown or black in colour. They also have long legs that are covered in small hairs. Black house spiders are most commonly found in dark, secluded areas such as closets, basements, and attics.
If you spot any of these spiders in or around your home, it’s important to call a professional spider control company like Canberra Pest Exterminators.
