Experts are saying that we’re in for a Redback spider invasion!!!
Redback spider numbers have never been higher than right now on the Gold Coast as research shows a 15 year spike in the usual numbers.
These potentially-lethal arachnids, have been bitting up to four people a week across the southeast this year. The spider’s seem to be favouring the suburbs over the waterfront locations, with Pacific Pines and Upper Coomera emerging as hot spots.
Call outs for “spiderbusters” like My Pestie to exterminate redbacks have spiked 35 per cent compared to this time last year. Seems the rain is the culprit for the explosion of spiders which the years of draught had kept a lid on.
But don’t panic Gold Coasters, no one has died from a confirmed spider bite in Australia since 1979.
This being said, don’t underestimate the redback as they love to live in places our kids play so we need to be vigilant and act on any infestations as we seem them.
My Pestie can help keep our pets and children safe from these nasty spiders by using eco friendly, safe and as close to natural pest control .
