Common Spiders in Brisbane

Spider Pest Control

Brisbane, and the greater area of South East Queensland, is home to a lot of different species of spiders. Many of these spiders like to come into your home to take advantage of the shelter and food supply it provides. At Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control, we provide a professional and humane pest control service. We have been helping residents of South East Queensland with their spider problems for decades. There is no better or more experienced team to trust than Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control. In this blog, we will be taking a look at a few of the most common spiders in South East Queensland.

Daddy Long Legs

If you have resided in South East Queensland then it is almost certain that you have spotted a Daddy Long Legs. They are easily identified by their long and thin legs that sprawl out from their body and are often found hiding in the upper corners of rooms. Fortunately the Daddy Long Legs only produces a small amount of venom and this isn’t considered to be harmful to humans.


Redback spiders are another common spider for the South East Queensland region. Unlike the Daddy Long Legs spider, Redback spiders are very venomous and can cause severe illness, pain and even death when not treated correctly. You will most likely find Redback spiders outside, but they do invade your home from time to time, taking up shelter under chairs, tables and even your bin lid! You can spot a Redback spider by looking for the iconic red mark on their backs.
