About Black House Spiders Treatment Adelaide

Black house spiders (Badumna insignis) are a common spider species in Australia. They are also known as window spiders because they often build their webs around window frames. These spiders are typically dark brown or black, and their abdomen is charcoal grey with a dorsal pattern of white markings. The females are larger than the males and can grow up to 18 mm in length and have a leg span of up to 30 mm.

Diet of Black House Spiders

Black house spiders are carnivorous and feed on insects and other small arthropods. They use their webs to catch their prey, which they subdue with venom before consuming.

Black house spiders’ most common prey include flies, mosquitoes, moths, and other small flying insects. However, they are also known to feed on other spiders, including smaller individuals of their species.

Frequently Asked Questions

While black house spiders are venomous, they are not typically considered dangerous. These spiders are generally timid, and bites from them are infrequent. However, if a bite does occur, it can be excruciatingly painful and may cause local swelling. Occasionally, nausea, vomiting, sweating, and giddiness may arise.
Predation is a common trait among almost all spider species. Like how most spiders primarily feed on insects, these also consume small animals such as crickets, grasshoppers, lizards, frogs, rodents, and even birds.
Black House Spiders create their webs using cribellate silk, which is not sticky but consists of combed fine strands that are highly effective at trapping insects by ensnaring their spiny legs. These webs are characterised by lacy silk sheets spread around one or more entrances to the spider’s retreat.
