  • Trapdoor Spiders
  • Mouse Spiders

Areas Treated

  • Ground area around the home
  • Entertaining / BBQ areas
  • Retaining walls

Time Required & Access

The Ground Dwelling Spider Treatment usually takes about 1 hour to complete depending on the size of the property. We will require access to all external areas around the home including any sheds you wish to be treated. Please unlock any gates.

Preparation for the treatment

We would appreciate if you can move any items outside that may interfere with our access to all ground areas around the home. This could involve kids toys, garden furniture and any general items stored outside. We would also appreciate if you could remove any washing from external clothes lines.

Pests not Included in this treatment

Cockroaches, webbing spiders above ground level, nesting ants, bees, rodents, termites, fleas, birds and possums.


3 months provided the ground areas around the home are not disturbed.

Please note that the Ground Dwelling Spider Treatment is the best possible pesticide application to eradicate these spiders. It is however impossible to lift every rock and log during treatment. We will certainly do our best to treat all possible areas where these spiders may live.

Wet Weather

Light rain will not affect this treatment. In fact the rain will carry the treatment further into the soil where the spiders live. If the rain is torrential on the day, we will reschedule the appointment to a more suitable day.


Payment is required on the day of service – we accept cash, eftpos, visa and mastercard.
