Simon from HPC has been delivering an annual pest control service to me for the last 5 years. He's local, on time, efficient and value for money. NO job is too small. Very knowledgable and comes up with cost effective options without the big sell. Highly recommended. p.s replies to messages very quickly and if he can, same day service.

Peter is a lifesaver! He provided invaluable ongoing advice to us over the phone when we were dealing with a potential bed bug infestation, and came out to our property to have a look (free of charge). Such incredible service and advice - thank you!

After the shock of finding termites in our garage I felt my luck had turned when I got in contact with Peter from Hindmarsh Pest Control. Peter is upfront, knowledgeable and just a nice guy. When Simon and his team came to do the job they were extremely thorough and helped a heap by answering all my stupid questions. Could not recommend them enough. Thanks guys

Simon did a fantastic job and the proof I have already seen, with dead spider sightings already. If you hate these things as much as I do you know it'simportant to see the body to make sure they are dead. Thanks again and I will get him back next time!

We love everything about Simon's work. He's reliable, professional, good value and most importantly; he's thorough and honest.Our previous experience with a larger well known pest company left us disappointed after they did not install the termite bates adequately. There was also no personal service like Simon provides us.My partner and I highly recommend Simon for your pest & termite issues, we're so happy, thank you Simon 🙂

Simon gave me a quote two and a half years ago but I opted to go with another company much to my dismay and dissatisfaction. Recently because of the ongoing termite problems in my home I am employed Simon and he has baited and inspected. He was punctual, reliable and has a thorough understanding of his trade. He was very informative answered all my questions clearly and spent many more hours on my property than originally anticipated however did not alter his original quote that he had given me. I would highly recommend Simon and his company to anybody who has any pest problems in their home

We found the signs of termites in our home 4 years ago and of the companies my husband called, Simon from HPC was the only one who came out to inspect that same day, on a Saturday afternoon. Fortunately the baiting removed all activity and we have continued monitoring and regular inspections, and feel secure in Simon's knowledge and expertise to keep our house safe. Very professional, reliable and responsive service and we would definitely recommend HPC to anyone.

Excellent company which is thorough and professional in every aspect. The job was not rushed and the pest controller, Paul, listened carefully to my request. The pool area was treated for ants, and the rest of the property for spiders and other unwanted insects. We have used them before and I would not hesitate to use them again. Highly recommend Hindmarsh Pest control.

I had a spider problem just after the completion of building my new home. Simon suggested a spider treatment, which worked a treat and I now have him spray my property every year as a precaution. He is very thorough and professional and I believe in supporting small local business so I would definitely recommend HPC to anyone.

Our spider treatments focus on web-spinning spiders – redbacks and black house spiders –  as they are the main cause for concern.

The areas we normally treat include:

  • Fences
  • Eaves and gutters
  • Windows and door frames
  • Weep holes and vents
  • Any outbuildings
  • Roof voids and sub-floor (if present)
  • Spot treatments inside, if required

We use a range of products to provide quick knockdown and long lasting control and offer a 3 months warranty (service free period) on web-spinning spiders.

Huntsman and white-tail spiders

Our standard spider treatment provides a warranty on web-building spiders only as ground spiders (such as huntsman and white-tails) can walk on the tips of their legs over a treated surfaces without picking up enough insecticides, it is still possible for the occasional huntsman or white tail spider to enter. See “How our spider treatments work” for more information.

The sprays and dusts we use will kill any spider they contact. They also leave invisible residual layer on treated surfaces, which will kill any spiders that come along later and stop them building their webs.

Removing spider webs

If you have a lot of webs, it is important that you leave the webs in place for 2-3 days after treatment. This ensures that any spiders hiding at the time of treatment pick up insecticide when they come out onto their web. After a couple of days, brush down any unsightly webs (don’t wash them down with a hose as you will wash the treatment away as well!).

Huntsman and White-tail spiders

Most homeowners have problems with web-spinning spiders, but if you have a specific problem with huntsman or white-tails, please let us know so we can investigate.

The problem with ground or running spiders such as white-tails and huntsman is that they can walk across treated surfaces on the tips of their legs to avoid contact with the insecticide.

However, our general pest treatment and standard spider treatment will take care of insects and web-spinning spiders (black house spiders are the favourite food of white-tail spiders). This lack of prey means huntsman or white-tails are likely to move elsewhere.

However, if you are experiencing a serious problem with huntsman and white-tail spiders, we definitely need to do something! We will carry out an inspection and tailor our treatment to deal with the problem.

Spiders eat insects (and other spiders!). So doing anything to keeps the insect numbers down, will make your home less attractive for spiders – a general pest treatment once a year is a good idea!

Trim back and remove vegetation from around the perimeter of your home to reduce spider hiding spots.

Prune any bushes or trees near paths and driveways – we all hate walking through spider webs!

Avoid storing goods, rubbish and wood piles around and under your home. Wood piles and garden rubbish are particular hotspots for redbacks, huntsman and white-tails.

Spiders will often try and come inside during hot or wet weather. Make sure insect screens fit well and fill any other cracks or entry points.

As huntsman and white-tails like squeezing into tight spaces, avoid leaving shoes, clothes and sheets on the floor, especially in the warmer months where they are looking for a cool, hiding spot.
