Spider species found in Albury-Wodonga & the surrounds

Huntsman Spiders

Huntsman spiders are long-legged, large spiders. They are mostly grey to brown in colour, with banded legs on occasion. Many huntsman spiders, particularly Delena (the flattest), as well as Isopeda, Isopedella, and Holconia, have flattened bodies that allow them to live in tight spaces under loose bark or rock crevices. This is aided by their legs, which, rather than bending vertically in relation to the body, have the joints twisted so that they spread out forwards and laterally in a crab-like fashion (hence the name “giant crab spiders”).

Brown Huntsman (Heteropoda species) spiders are patterned in motley brown, white and black.

Danger to humans:

Bites can cause local pain and they may be relieved by using a cold pack. If the symptoms persist, seek medical attention.

Safe, environmentally friendly spider spray

Cheap, cost-cutting pesticides can be mixed with nasty solvents and low-quality constituents that can harm the environment. Hardware store pesticides can be even worse. 

High-quality ‘research & development’ chemistry is used in our spider sprays. 

We use an environmentally-friendly product, which is not mixed with harmful solvents. 

The product we use is a natural insecticide, formulated to get the best results while limiting harm to the environment. Biflex is among the safest professional chemistry for use in the pest control industry.

Frequently Asked Questions about Spider Sprays

A spider spray of a standard 3-4 bedroom house should take around an hour to an hour and a half to complete the standard package described above.

The residual of the spray should last between 9 and 10 months. 

If you get your house sprayed for spiders every year, you will normally see the effects for the entire year.

You may see a few baby spiders start to come back around the time your annual is spray due. If you want no spiders all year round, you may consider having a spray every six months.

  • Please shut all windows and doors to prevent air cross flow and drift during spraying. 
  • If possible, please move furniture and stored goods (kids toys in particular) off internal and external walls so that we can spray behind them.
  • Notify us if you have any pets and make arrangements for them. Most of the time we can work around pets, but sometimes puppies can be difficult. 
  • Notify us in particular if you have fish or crustaceans such as yabbies, which are affected more by the chemistry of our spray.
  • Let us know if you are leaving the property or staying around. If you are staying, you will need to be outside the house until the spray dries. 
  • Please leave your clothesline free of clothes. 
  • Put any food and clean dishes away in cupboards.
  • Wash out pet food and water bowls.
  • Wipe your bench and table with soapy water before cooking or eating.
  • Try not to wash your windows for at least 2 or 3 weeks.
  • Don’t pressure-wash walls or paths near the house, it will remove the residual spray.

Notify us when you book us in for the spider spray. Even if we have sprayed your place before – we may have forgotten.

We can work around your pets, but it is often easier if you are able to remove them during treatment. 

If you have an inside-only pet, we normally lock it in one room and let it out after we are finished, then finish off that room. 

Only until the spray dries. This is normally 1.5 to 2 hours in the summer and 3-4 hours in the winter. 

You are welcome to stay during the treatment, but you will have to wait outside until the spray dries.

If you are opting for an outside spray only, you are welcome to stay inside. 

A spider spray can be done any time of the year. However, we believe you get more value out of a spider spray if it is done at the start of Spring.

If you get it done during Spring, the residual effect of the chemistry will affect new emerging spiderlings more effectively, and you’ll interrupt the life cycle of the spiders before they establish themselves.

It’s the same when you go for an x-ray and the radiologist stands behind a lead-lined screen. A small amount is completely safe for you, but high exposure over a long period can be unhealthy.

Although the chemistry we use is low-toxicity, we are exposed to it for many hours a day, all year round. We take our safety very seriously. We actually wear more PPE than is required by the label for Biflex just to be safe. 

Normally most clients notice a reduction in insects such as earwigs, crickets, and millipedes

However, if you want these to be controlled directly, it’s better to arrange for us to do a targeted treatment.

Ants are not normally controlled by a spray for spiders. This is because the chemistry in these treatments is completely different.

In short, yes.

Our spray relies on the spider or insect coming into contact with the spray.

If you were to paint, then you would cover the spray. If you were to replace or clean carpet, pressure wash surfaces, or clean your windows then you would be removing the spray, reducing or nullifying its effectiveness.

If you plan to do any of the above, do it before we spray or your protection will be affected.


The chemistry we use is plant-based and has no herbicidal effect.

We don’t use solvent-based cheap chemicals, so there should be no leaf burn either.

Yes, we can organise alternative access arrangements such as leaving a key in a safe place, or having a family friend or neighbour let us in at your request.

The insecticidal dust we use in roof voids is permethrinbased. Permethrin is one of the most safe residual insecticides, and is even used in lice treatments, mosquito coils, and mosquito-repellent clothing.

You will get more value out of your spray.

Although an outside spray will control spiders entering from the ground, we can’t spray the top of your roof.

When spiderlings are released in a ballooning event, they can land directly on your roof without coming into contact with our spray residue. From there, they can drop down from vents, downlights, and other gaps.

You will see the effects of your spray longer.

After several months, the outside spray can reduce in residual power with exposure to weather. The residue is still there, but after some time it takes longer to kill spiders that are in contact with it. So spiders can get inside before they build up a lethal dose. Having a backup spray in target areas inside will mean that you see fewer spiders inside, even if they get past the outside spray.

Our inside spray is only a light spray around cornices, skirtings, window frames, entry points, and behind & under furniture.

All insecticides are toxic to bees. We minimise our impact on bees in the following ways:

We only use repellent insecticides in spider sprays. Non-repellent insecticides like neonicotinoids, fipronil, and other products are much more toxic to bees.

We don’t spray flowering plants and keep our spray low around them whenever possible.

We do a targeted spray, rather than the nuclear option. Our spray mostly goes to cracks, crevices, and areas where spiders rest, nest, and crawl. In this way, we limit the amount of insecticide required, which is good for bees.

Yes, we have a reminder list. We send out our reminders a month before the spray is due to give you time to book it in.
