Spider control

Easily recognisable by their eight legs, some happily tolerate the presence of spiders whilst others simply cannot bear the thought of them. Professional spider control is an option for those with a real fear of spiders, but also those who struggle with large or repeated spider infestations.

Our local technicians have expert knowledge of and experience with Australian spider species. We can offer advice on how to spot the early signs of a spider infestation to enable effective,  targeted treatment for your home or business. All spiders will be professionally identified and if any harmful species are found, Rentokil will provide the appropriate treatment recommendations and advice.

For over 50 years, Rentokil has been supplying humane and effective spider control solutions designed to protect commercial and residential properties from all species of pest spiders.

Spider inspection and monitoring

Rentokil will install insect monitor units designed to trap spiders but not attract them. Monitor units will be strategically positioned in areas where spiders are likely to be foraging, sheltering and seeking mates.

Spider proofing and site recommendations

Rentokil technicians can advise on spider proofing measures and adjustments made to areas where spiders commonly seek shelter to deter spiders from the premises. This may include filling in gaps around pipework, in walls, and under doors. 

Spider insecticidal sprays and dust

Effective on a wide range of interior and exterior surfaces as well as in cracks and crevices, residual treatment such as spider insecticidal sprays and dust compromise the spider’s nervous system or exoskeleton. They typically work within 24 hours, offering quick means of controlling spiders. Suitable for long-term solutions under cabinets and along basement walls, this versatile product exterminates spiders and other pest insects such as bed bugs, cockroaches, fleas and ants.

Spider insecticidal misting

Spider insecticidal misting via a ultra low volume (ULV) cold fogger is an efficient and effective method of spider  control suitable for larger premises such as warehouses, sheds and boat docks.. The insecticide is dispersed widely tackling spaces where spiders breed.
