White-Tailed Spider

Lampona Cylindrata



Lampona group spiders are commonly found across all of Oz. L. Cylindrata is quite commonly found and distributed across disturbed and urban areas.

Identification and Habits:

The White-Tailed spider is cylindrical in shape, measuring 1-2 cm, and the female is known to be more robust than the male. Their colour is quite dull, dark grey to brown in appearance and they have a distinctive white spot at the rear of their abdomen, (this is occasionally paired with spots closer toward the front), their legs have a sheen and are brownish. They are active during the night, they are a hunter species and are encountered underneath bark and leaf litter as well as in houses. They are known to attack and eat other spider species including the Black House spider.


Symptoms of the White-Tailed spider bite is usually limited to a local mild stinging or burning pain near the bite wound, sometimes this is followed by an itchy lump that develops after the bite. The less common symptoms that on occasion follow a bite are swelling, discoloration accompanied by local ulceration and sometimes nausea and vomiting. There is however no conclusive evidence that links these spiders to cause significant skin damage or ulceration.

First Aid Protocol:

Ice pack to relieve pain surrounding the bite. If symptoms are persistent seek medical advice or assistance.

"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."

"A1 Pest Control exterminators where great! I'm very happy to say that they solved a bed bug problem that I had after we had visitors from overseas visit us. I would recommend A1 Pest Control to anyone needing a safe and effective treatment of bed bugs"
Amanda Wu
"Bruce solved our commercial pest control problem in Castle Hill. Cockroaches were throughout our factory and they were completely gone after two visits from his exterminators. Just seeing one cockroach can lose us clients. I know now everyhing is ok, and our reputation is intact"

"Bruce from A1 Help us get rid of a bad spider infestation that have been troubling us for a while. It was done with low toxic spray and his crew even game me some cockroach and ant baits to get rid of them. I have recommended A1 to all my friends and family"
