Originally a Tasmanian species of beetle, the Australian Spider Beetle has now become by far the most common of spider beetles in the UK infesting homes and warehouses alike.
It has become known as both a general scavenger and as a stored product pest attacking a wide range of material from almost any dried vegetable or animal matter to textiles, packaging materials and even wood when larvae are seeking out their pupation sites.
The most common source of an infestation of spider beetles are birds nests.
This insect is not capable of biting humans.
2.5 – 4mm in length, the middle of the body is constricted to give a spider-like appearance. The adult cannot fly.
If disturbed these insects will often ‘play dead’ and they are particularly active in dark conditions.
How best to treat an Australian Spider Beetle infestation?
It is important to discover the source of the infestation and remove it as soon as possible. Excel Pest Management would then use a residual long lasting insecticide which may be backed up by a ULV treatment.

Gary and Wendi at Excel Pest Management recently attended my ageing Auntie’s flat to investigate mice on the premises. Their response time and service was second to none and they went the ‘extra mile’ to ensure that my Auntie can now sleep peacefully at night without having to worry about vermin.
I would certainly recommend Excel Pest Control to get rid of your pests.
Gary is a true professional, I have hired him on a good few occasions and cannot fault his work ethic, knowledge and passion.
He is trustworthy, consistent and reliable and I would recommend Gary and Excel pest management to all.

Gary has an excellent professional approach to his work, from initial survey and quotation, through to delivering ‘what it says on the tin’ – always with a friendly yet committed customer focus.
Attaining accreditation within the first year probably says it all and it is a pleasure doing business with him.

Friendly, cheap and speedy service. Came out the same day as I rang with no extra cost. Would truly recommend to anybody.
We had a problem with wasps nests which was resolved very quickly. Excellent service provided, punctual, reliable and thorough. If we have any further problems we now know who to contact.
We just moved into a property and realised the place was riddled in fleas. We called excel pest management and he reacted fast. He was with us within 24h of the phone call. He came in done the first spray which did the job then 2 weeks later done the second lot of spraying to be sure all eggs and fleas have gone. Really pleased with his service and would recommend to anyone with the same problem. Fantastic job done!!
