Redback Pest Control Sydney

Native to Australia, the Redback Spider is a member of the widow family of arachnids. Known by her characteristic red stripe on the upper side of the black body, female redbacks are about a centimetre in length, while males are a bit smaller (3 to 4 mm long). Like its cousin, the Black Widow, the redback spider also displays sexual cannibalism while mating. The neurotoxin venom carried by the redback ranks them as one of the most deadly spiders in Australia. If bitten, victims will experience intense pain and even death. With proper redback pest control, Sydney residents can keep these threats at bay.

Symptoms of Redback Bites

If bitten, medical attention should be immediately sought out. Redbacks have only caused an estimated 14 known deaths in Australia’s history, with zero deaths reported after the introduction of the anti-venom in 1984. Although the bite won’t be fatal with proper medical treatment, the pain will still be excruciating. Symptoms of a redback bite include:

  • Severe Pain
  • Swelling
  • Tender Lymph Nodes
  • Malaise
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Chest Pain
  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Tremor

Because they like to hide out in dry habitats, they could find basements, attics, and other hideouts in your home to be the perfect place to nest. With effective redback control, Sydney residents can keep these dangerous spiders from putting loved ones at risk.
