Experts in Spider Removal

Although spiders do a huge amount of good by way of natural insect control, particularly predating on over-wintering queen wasps, there is no doubt that there is a general fear of them.

In one or two cases you definitely don’t want them around, and one of those is the case of the false widow spider. This spider is certainly ‘on the march’ in the UK and although most reports tend to be from the Southern Counties, reports are appearing from other areas too, including Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Norfolk. Although its bite is by no means as nasty as that of the black widow, they do give a nasty venomous bite with the pain said to be much like that of a wasp or bee sting. The bite of this spider and others of the genus Steatoda can also produce symptoms knows as Steatodism in which the victim exhibits an extreme pain radiating from the bite, together with fever and general discomfort. In other words, something to avoid if you can! The False Widow constructs a scaffold style web of tremendous strength, normally including a tubular hole into which is retreats. They have poor eyesight and depend on vibration to latch onto their prey.


The false widow spider has a brown body and legs with a shiny appearance, and has distinct cream markings on its bulbous body. The creamy markings are often likened to a skull shape. Females (9.5-14mm) are slightly bigger than males (7-11mm), and their bites are considerably worse!!


Do not attempt to rid your property of false widow or other biting spiders– if in any doubt, call a professional. Treatment involves a mixture of physical collection, web elimination and the use of professional strength insecticidal sprays with a powerful residual.
