March is traditionally a windy time. It’s also a time of changeable weather here in Adelaide. Wind, warmth, wet – all things that will bring spiders out in their own right. Add them together and it’s like the perfect Spider storm!
With our leafy suburbs, we have a number of gorgeous trees in our yards, trees are a favourite home to Spiders – especially Hunstmans. When the wind blows, their homes shake rattle & roll and the spiders look for somewhere a little less disruptive. Somewhere like your letter box or inside your home.

A General Pest Spray is another handy solution. The general spray not only reduces Spider numbers but also the insects they prey on. Now that’s a win-win for you and your home.
