- Not A Spider You Meet In Ireland Every DayAuthor: Central Pest Control | Tuesday 17/06/2014
At the end of last week, we were called out to tackle a spider problem in a home in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. Imagine our surprise when the problem in question turned out to be this guy (pictured), a White-Tailed Black spider from Australia/New Zealand!
The homeowner had recently returned from New Zealand and it looks like the little arachnid decided to hitch a lift in their clothing or luggage. These particular spiders can give a very nasty bite, so we removed it promptly and forwarded it to a panel of expert entomologists we work with at Trinity College Dublin.
Thanks to Jeff in Central Pest Control for sorting a problem out for my elderly Aunt. He was extremely efficient and sympathetic to her problem and dealt with the issue quickly. Great service from the team. Thanks
