Australia is home to a wide variety of spiders and although not all spiders are venomous, some do have the ability to cause serious side effects that require either first aid treatment or a hospital visit. It’s important to us that you feel safe and comfortable in your home!
We thought up the idea for this blog post after one of our North Lakes’ pest control customers pointed at a Saint Andrew’s Cross Spider in her garden and said “What’s that?” After we told our customer what kind of spider it was, she said, “I went to google it, but didn’t know what to google.” So here we are! This post will help you identify Australian Spiders along the Sunshine Coast with a spider identification chart. The chart lists spiders from the least venomous to the most venomous.

Good luck with your spider spotting and remember to stay safe. If you or someone you know has been bitten by one of these spiders we recommend following St. John’s DRSABCD method.
