Redback Spiders

These spiders are one of the best known poisonous spiders in Australia. The female Redback bite can cause death or severe illness. The majority of these bites are received on the buttocks of the body generally when someone is sitting on a chair or log, or on the hands or arms when reaching into dark close spaces.

Under the lip of plastic pot plant holders are a favourite haunt of these spiders.

The Redback spider can be found all over Australia and generally will hide in stacked articles, underneath tables and chairs particularly outside and in rubbish. Redback spiders can often be identified by their distinctive red strip along the top of their abdomen, but sometimes they can have an entirely black abdomen when they can be mistaken for your normal house spider, or the red can be a dull orange colour. A Redback web is usually very messy with bits of grass and sometimes leaves in the web.
