Use Caution Outdoors and When Gardening
When gardening, always wear gloves and remain alert for any signs of a funnel-web spider burrow. Encounters with funnel-web spiders usually happen when someone digs the spider up accidentally, or when male spiders are roaming around, looking for a female.
Also, if you have left your shoes outside, check them for spiders before putting them on. It’s also a wise idea the check your shoes indoors too.
If a Sydney Funnel Web spider does get inside your home, they are likely to move into the cooler, damp places inside, such as the laundry room, bathroom, or garage.
