Which Spider is this?

September 6, 2018

 We have all seen the posts "What sort of Spider is this??"  So we have compiled a handy list of the four most common Spider's we come across on a daily basis, to help you identify what your dealing with!

 

BLACK HOUSE SPIDER

 

Female up to 1.6cm, Male 1cm.   Front dark brown to black with a grey abdomen with white markings.  They are timid spiders and rarely bite.

 

Commonly found in homes, in funnel-shaped webs, often in corners of windows etc.

 

Bite is not lethal, but can cause a lot of pain, with some side effects such as nausea, vomiting, sweating etc.

 

RED BACK SPIDER

 

Females up to 1.4cm, Black with an red/orange stripe on abdomen.  Males 0.4cm with less distinct markings

 

Commonly found under furniture, fence caps, rubbish bins.

 

Highly venomous, bites most often happen in the afternoon or evening 

 

 

 

WHITE-TAILED SPIDER

 

Females up to 1.8cm, Males 1.2cm.  Dark grey with a long body with a white spot on tip of abdomen

 

Night hunters, they feed on webbing spiders, especially the black house spider.

 

Bites cause burning pain followed by itchiness and swelling

 

WOLF SPIDER

If you suspect you have been bitten by a Spider always seek medical attention
