While most species of spiders who find their way into homes are fairly harmless, some spiders in Australia are notorious for their potential danger. In Sydney, the most common type of dangerous spiders are the Red Back Spider, the While Tail Spider and the Funnel Web Spider.
If you see a spider in your home, do not try to touch or catch it. Spiders will typically leave humans alone but may bite if they feel threatened. If spiders are present in your home, avoid creating extra hiding places by picking up clothes and loose items from the floor. Always be sure to check your shoes and gloves before putting them on.
Funnel Web Spiders are ground-dwelling spiders and require special treatment directly to their holes or to the spider themselves. Do not try to catch a Funnel Web Spider. If possible, watch from a safe distance to find the general area where the hole may be. If you are bitten by a Funnel Web Spider, seek medical assistance immediately.
