White tail and Spider Control

Stop Spiders from Taking Over - Call Ace Eradicators Now

If you can remove other spiders there will be no food for White Tails and no reason for them
to come into your home. The White Tail Spider is native of Australia. (Why are so many of our pests Aussies?) They probably arrived here first about 100 years ago and found the conditions to their liking. Whitetails are predators of other spiders. They don't weave a web to catch prey; they actively seek out other spiders and stalk them down. They do however; produce silk in a tangle as a nest. This is often found in warm dark places around the house.

Say Goodbye to Ants with Ace Eradicators Pest Control

Our recommendation for vacating the premises after the pest control treatment, is (2) hours. In the case of those with respiratory problems (e.g. Asthma), allergies and hypersensitivity to chemicals, we recommend a longer period.

Upon your return, open all windows and doors to ventilate the premises.

You may notice a slight odour from our treatment materials.

Where a residual spray has been applied (inside), it is done so to control the remaining insects and also prevent the pests from re-establishing themselves.

Say Goodbye to Ants with Ace Eradicators Pest Control

Whitetails produce venom that they use to paralyze their prey by injecting it via their fangs. These fangs are such that the spider can bite humans. That they do bite humans is not in dispute. However, the seriousness of the bite is still controversial. It is accepted that the bite is as painful as a bee sting but there are many people that report more serious reactions including stiffness, headaches and swelling. There are also many reports of ulceration and necrosis possibly caused by infection of the bite either directly from the spider fangs or subsequently from scratching of the wound.

White Tail spiders do not seek to bite us but will defend themselves if they feel under threat. They hunt mostly during the night and hide in dark nooks and crannies during the day. They are often found amongst the folds of clothing, curtains, bed linen, in shoes and other places where we may innocently place our hands or feet. The spider’s natural reaction to this invasion of 'their' space is to bite. And we suffer the consequences.

In all cases, it will be the degree of infestation that determines the amount of insects you will see after the initial treatment. In some circumstances a second treatment is required – you can contact Ace Eradicators directly on 06 876 0812 or text 027 445 4011.
