Most spiders during the day, they are seldom seen, unless they are disturbed in their natural environments. When daylight fades, spiders become active. They leave the protection of their burrows or shelters and go out in search of food or, in the case of web-spinning spiders, construct their webs to snare prey. As day break, most spiders seek the safety of their shelters again. Some of them are toxic and some of them are non-toxic, some advices are given below to prevent from spider bites:
- Wear gloves when gardening and handling soil or rubbish.
- Wear sensible footwear when walking outside.
- Don’t leave toys, clothes and other such articles on the ground overnight.
- Be alert for wandering ground-dwelling spiders after long periods of very wet weather.
- Be alert for wandering ground-dwelling spiders following the widespread application of insecticides. Where spiders are not directly contacted by the insecticide, they may be disturbed and wander more than usual.
