Hands up who likes Spiders?!


The White Tail Spider

White-tail spiders are vagrant hunters that usually roam at night. Instead of spinning webs a they prefer to eat other spiders, such as daddy-long-legs, redbacks and black house spiders.

White-tailed spiders are a dark reddish grey colour with a cigar-shaped body. Their defining feature is a white spot at their tip. The males abdomen is 12mm, and the female spider’s abdomen is 18mm – roughly the size of your fingernail.

There are some 60 species distributed throughout Australia.

They are adaptable to both bush and urban environments and hide beneath bark, rocks, in gardens and within tight spaces inside your home.

You are most likely to find a white-tailed spider indoors, at night, and during the warmer months.
