Across Gosford, spiders certainly have a fearsome reputation as some of the world’s most dangerous spiders. There are two types – the Webbing Spiders and the Ground Dwelling Spiders. The most common Gosford spiders are the White Tail and Redbacks and are found in subfloors and dry areas. Equipment and furniture are also common hiding places for them. White Tail spiders like to feed on common black house spiders and can be dangerous, which means you should try to keep your house spider-free to avoid feeding white-tails and supporting their breeding.

First Aid For Spider Bites

Red-back spider (Lactrodectus): Wash the bite site; apply antiseptic and a cool pack. In the majority of cases only minor pain and redness occur. In 25% of cases, severe pain and other symptoms such as sweating, headache, vomiting and muscle pain develop over the first few hours. Hospital assessment is required for severe symptoms.

White-tailed spider (Lampona): There is no clear scientific evidence that bites from these spiders’ cause skin ulceration. Treat as for bites from spiders-other.

Spiders-other: Wash the bite site, apply antiseptic and see your GP if signs of local infection develop.


Cockroaches are one of the most hated pests in Australia, and the Gosford Region seems to be a breeding ground for them due to the humid climate conditions. Unsuspecting resting or harbourage areas include cracks & crevices, coffee machines, fridges, toasters and many other electrical food appliances, however activity is not limited to just kitchen areas. Where they are present in large numbers they may give out an unpleasant smell. The female cockroach can produce up to eight egg cases every 4 weeks, each of which can contain up to 30 eggs. Cockroach nymphs (babies) emerge from their eggs after 2-4 weeks.

Asthmatic reactions – cockroaches must moult several times as they grow from young nymph to adult the discarded skin becomes airborne and can cause severe asthmatic reactions, particularly to children, the elderly, and people with bronchial ailments.

Therefore, it is important that once sighted, an elimination program is initiated immediately.

Rats & Mice

The Climate in the Gosford Region is conducive to the Norway rat, roof rat, and house mouse often living in close association with humans and can be serious pests under certain conditions. They can carry and transmit organisms across Gosford geographies that can cause disease, damage or destroy buildings and electronic equipment by their gnawing behaviours, and cross contaminate surfaces. With the older historic Commercial and Residential make-up across the Gosford Region there is increased activity and harbourage areas where they live and multiply sometimes unnoticed.

Australian Pest Specialists Gosford Team can find and eradicate them before they damage your Home, Business or Reputation.

I had a pest problem about 9 months ago and had Australian Pest Specialists come out. I couldn't recommend them enough! They were friendly, professional and I haven't had a cockroach since. Very happy with the service, thank you!
