Your meant too, not mention
I never had them at my old place, well a few in the shed door, but nothing near the house, I had heaps of black house spiders and daddy long legs there though... I'm in the hunter valley, this place was a bit neglected when we moved in, so I'm not surprised there was a few... But seeing them.... Argh
gosh... nasty little critters then.
i'm in brisbane and have seen them around! especially when i was growing up. but we lived next to a creek i suppose. pest control. in the meantime see if you can get your hands on some chlorine (pool shop) and dilute it a bit, so essentially making a strong bleach, and spray it around.
i currently have mice (again) and a couple of types of cockroaches (again) and spiders as well and should really get a pest control through. problem is i have birds so doing a pest control is a real balancing act. means skipping an entire room out and having the birds locked in there for the day with a towel under the door cos the spray chemicals would kill them.
Just called pest control for a quote, $154 for the redbacks 1 year guarantee. They come back for free if you get them within the year
Worth it I reckon. I can deal with most things but I draw the line at snakes and red backs! I like the one year warranty, too.
We used an outdoor spider spray from the supermarket on them outside, and an indoor spray where they were on windows indoors. It was awful (The are so timid and scared but not worth the risk when you have babies and a 40min drive to hospital) but it worked. We did it over a year ago and they've never been back. I sprayed all the outdoor toys and slide etc too.
I found another one on the window, squished it too.
We are short on cash since the move, I do have an outdoor spray we bought a while ago, might whip around the house with that first, then see if it's worth calling the professionals, only been 4 all around the same area so far
