Get Rid of Spiders the Easy Way with BugZero

Have you ever noticed spiders in your home? It wouldn’t be unusual if you have. New Zealand is home to approximately 2500 species of spiders. While these critters might not be welcome guests, they usually aren’t a significant danger to you. 

Nevertheless, if you find spiders in your home, you’ll probably want to remove them. At BugZero, our commitment is to plan and eliminate those pests from your home strategically. Your search, of course, for spider treatment for house ends right here.

Common Spider Species Near You

Most spider species pose no threat to humans. While they may be unsettling to some their webs can be messy.  Take a look at our compilation of common spider species:

Katipo Spider (Latrodectus katipo): It is distinguished by its black body with a red stripe across the belly. Indigenous to New Zealand, it may be found along the shore, notably in Auckland. Venomous bites are dangerous, especially to people with allergies.

Avondale Spider: A sizable spider with a body length of around 30mm and a leg span of up to 200mm. It preys on moths and flies actively and predominantly hunts at night. It seeks shelter during the day in dark, dry areas. In its natural habitat beneath loose bark on wattle trees, it lives in colonies. Around human dwellings, it hides in various places like attics, and behind objects and bookcases.

Black-Headed Jumping Spider: Small spiders with a body length of about 10mm. These active hunters rely on their good eyesight to pounce on prey from short distances. They use silk as a dragline while hunting and are harmless to humans.

Daddy Long Legs Spider: Typically 7-9mm in length, with noticeably extended legs. Females deposit eggs and may occasionally carry them in their palps. They spin loose webs in sheltered regions, typically in human-made structures such as houses, garages, and sheds. Despite being a nuisance with their webs, they are non-toxic and eat large insects and other spiders. They are typically encountered in metropolitan areas.

What Are The Signs of a Spider Infestation?

Spiders often live in dark, quiet areas, both indoors and outdoors, such as your house or garden. Here are some ways to detect spider activity:

Look out for spider webs: These can range in size and form depending on the spider species. Some weave orb-shaped webs, while others build funnel-shaped ones. Furthermore, some spiders reside in burrows rather than webs, but others move freely and seek refuge in cracks and crevices.

Moist environments: Some spider species are attracted to moist places. Inspect basements, walls, sheds, and other moisture-prone areas for evidence of spider activity.

Common hiding spots: Spiders can also be found in attics, wall-to-ceiling joints, closets, and storage boxes.

Feeding habits: Spiders generally eat insects such as ants, flies, woodlice, and other spiders. Spiders are likely to be present wherever insects are plentiful, anxiously awaiting their next meal.

Seasonal patterns: Spiders become more busy in the fall, as temperatures decrease, especially in their quest for partners. Many spiders die at the end of fall, while others hibernate until the next spring.

Additionally, keep a lookout for spider egg sacs, which usually contain around 100 eggs apiece. These sacs can be connected to surfaces, buried within webs, or carried by female spiders. The presence of egg sacs indoors suggests that additional spiders may soon emerge.

Great service - highly recommended
— Tony, Remuera

I recently used BugZero's services to get rid of the 8 legged monsters in and around my house. Within the same day bodies were turning up, flies were dropping and the ants have disappeared. I would highly recommend the company as they were very friendly to deal with. It was all the better as I found the BugZero technicians competent and trustworthy. I will definitely be using their service again.
