Warm spring to bring spiders
A WARM early spring is on the cards, which is good news not only for people but also, unfortunately, for the various creepy crawlies that love the end of winter as much as we do.
Bundaberg Bug Busters owner Michael Zobenica said as the temperatures rose spiders started to come out and breed.
He said the main breed of poisonous spider found in the Bundaberg region was the redback, which could deliver a painful bite that could kill mainly young or elderly people.
“You also get the common house spider, which many people think is a funnelweb,” he said.
Mr Zobenica said people needed to be careful when they brought in washing after dark or if it had been hanging up overnight.
