Spiders in Spring
Spiders can be a nuisance during the spring time in Australia. There are quite a lot of them coming out of hibernation. Some even hide in warm areas like your home, ready to come outside when the weather allows it. The same thing happens in the case of insects too, which is certainly something to take into account.
Why do spiders tend to be active during springtime?
When insects are very active, they are active too, because they do want to catch as much food as they can. That’s also the reason why you see lots of spiders during spring time, more than many other seasons. During spring time, female spiders will lay eggs, and they can lay up to 2500 eggs, but at least 100 is the minimum in these situations.
Understanding how spiders react and live during spring time is super important. It allows you to better narrow down their activity and prepare for how they live their life. You will also know how to get rid of them properly. When it comes to what kind of spiders you can encounter, these can be the black house spider, common house spider, white tailed spider, harvestman or huntsman spider, wolf spider, tarantulas, red headed mouse spider or even the redback spider. Sometimes even the daddy long legs spider or funnel web spiders, even the garden orb weaving spider can appear.
What should you do to get rid of spiders during springtime?
Ideally, you want to see if there are gaps and cracks in the foundation. Spiders use these as entry points within your home, and that alone is certainly something to think about. You can also check for holes in the screens. If possible, check the space between the door and doorframe. That’s where a lot of spiders are located, as it’s the right temperature, while also being out of your sight.
