We have very beautiful spiders in the bushland and Gold Coast hinterland and they make for some great photos. It is important though to remember it’s never a good idea to aggravate a spider. An untreated bite from the most dangerous spiders, the ‘Red Back’ and the ‘Funnel Web’ spider, could be fatal. These are commonly found on the Gold Coast so if you aren’t sure what sort a spider is, it is safer to assume that it is dangerous.
A homes with gaps around the door frames, window frames, air vents and pipe runs, will encounter more run ins with the pesky spider. The most popular entry point, is under the eaves of homes, where they will have access to the roof void from and can venture downward into the home.
