What are spiders- Gold Coast

Spiders are not insects, but rather arachnids. In contrast to insects, arachnids have eight legs instead of six, and their bodies are divided into two instead of three.
There are more than 45,000 species of spiders, which are present in all environments. From the small red back spider, which is only.011 inches long, to the enormous Goliath birdeater, a tarantula with almost a foot of leg span, spiders come in a variety of sizes.
The almost 4000 spider species that can be found on the Gold Coast are mostly harmless. Most spiders’ fangs are too little or too weak to pierce human skin, even when they bite. However, their bites can cause painful, red sores that take anywhere from a week to a month to heal, depending on the species.
Venomous spider bites that penetrate the skin and inject venom can cause serious medical issues, including hives, breathing problems, fever, nausea, muscle spasms, weakness, and lightheadedness, to mention a few.

A few kinds of spiders are dangerous to humans, despite the fact that most produce venom to capture prey. For instance, the venom of the black widow is a severe neurotoxin that affects the nerve system. Bite wounds from the Loxosceles genus and brown recluses can result in regional tissue damage and necrosis.


There are several warning signs that you may have been bitten by a spider. You can tell you may have been bitten by a spider if you see the following:

  • The bite has two puncture wounds
  • The bite doesn’t hurt badly
  • The bite hurt, and the pain gets worse
  • The bite swells or reddens
  • The bite develops into a sore
  • There is no visible bite
  • You see or catch the spider that bit you
  • You see or catch the spider that bit you

After some time passes, you may find yourself experiencing other symptoms. Common symptoms of a spider bite include:

  • Skin damage
  • Fever
  • Itching or rash
  • Pain around the bite location
  • Muscle pain
  • Purple or red blister
  • Sweating
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Headache


  • Your garden or home are covered in spider webs.
  • You notice spiders.
  • There are spider eggs, which are cream to white in color. They are typically attached to something (such as a fence, a crack in a wall, or a nook or cranny) after being wrapped in the spider’s silk.
  • Given how common spiders are in Australia, it might not be a big deal if you notice the occasional spider here and there. However, you must schedule a spider pest control treatment right away if you notice any of these signs in excess.
