Sac Spiders

Slender Sac Spiders:Chiracanthium

Stout Sac Spiders: Clubiona



Found across all of Australia within the forested and grassland areas.

Identification and Habits:

Sac Spiders are hunting spiders, measuring 1-2cm long, and they make small cylindrical or ovoid shaped silk sacs within which they retreat. The slender Sac Spider is commonly found hunting on foliage within bush as well as the garden. The males especially have slender bodies with large jaws and long slender legs. They are found in the colours of cream, brown or yellow most often. Their retreat sacs are constructed within folded leaves or blades of grass.

They do occasionally enter homes and build their retreat sacs in corners around walls or ceilings. Stout Sacs are stronger than the Slender Sac and have stout robust legs with their cylindrical bodies, colours ranging from a reddish brown to fawn shade. They can be found on house walls as well as fences yet are most commonly found beneath bark and inside leaf litter.


The Sac Spiders aren’t known to bite often and the symptoms are generally very minor. Symptoms of the Chiracanthium bite may include headaches, dizziness, sweating, nausea as well as local skin ulceration however most of these reports are related to overseas incidents.

First Aid:

Seek out medical assistance if persistent symptoms are found.

“Spiders are one of the most common pest issues in homes around Sydney, infamous spiders like the Redback aren’t the only pests from the arachnid family! We’ll get rid of any minor or less known spider species in Aus.”- Bruce Gow

"We first used A1 Pest Control a few years ago when we noticed a few termites under a wine barrell in the rear yard of our home. We asked A1 Pest Control Sydney to pay us a visit to have a thorough termite inspection of our home. Bruce and his crew were on time, and very well presented. They explained how they would get rid of the termite infestation using a low toxic method and how their Thermal cameras worked, It worked very well and now we can sleep at night!"

"We have been using Bruce form A1 Pest Control for over 4 years now. We bought our new house on the Hills Area, and moved in. our neighbours had problem with rodents and spiders so they are using A1 next door. I asked them if they could come over and treat our house too, as i didn't want to chase pest around our home. The service was not only effective, but carried out without any smelly fumes that we have experienced in our last house. They solved problem next door and I haven't seen a bug since."
