Redback Spiders, Are a common but very dangerous small spider found in Australia,


Recently a small Central Queensland hospital has been forced to close because of an infestation of potentially deadly redback spiders.

Queensland Health says spiders were previously only found in the ceiling of the Baralaba Multi Purpose Health Service, but recent warm weather has provided them with a good breeding environment in the main section of the hospital.

Rural director of Nursing Ellen Palmer says the hospital will close for one day so the buildings can be fumigated.

"Certainly in the area there has always been redbacks but we haven't had a problem at the hospital," she said.

"With the amount of eggs there we can't leave them with our regular spraying, so we really need to do something about it."
