Home Of Many Deadly Creatures

Dangers from Sharks, Crocodiles and Fish Stings

Australia is the home of most of the world’s deadliest animals.

Though the Great White Shark is responsible for a few deaths per year, it is a dangerous creature lurking in the waters. The mean Saltwater Crocodile’s powerful jaws and the Stinging Stonefish’s agonizing sting, that can be a lethal, due to the fact it sends the body into shock with the mind-numbing pain, are overwhelming features of these mighty animals.

Dangers from Slippery Reptiles

The Eastern Brown Snake is responsible for the most snake related deaths in the country. Camouflaged by its skin, this snake can hide in plain sight, and people will not even see it until they’ve been stung. The Mulga Snake, Red-bellied Black Snake, Tiger Snake and the Yellow-bellied Sea Snake are other examples of dangerous snakes that reside in Australia.

The elusive Inland Taipan, who is hard to find and capture, is the world’s most venomous snake living in reclusive areas in Australia, which why there are only a limited amount of recorded deaths if not none from its sting. The metropolitan area is relatively safer, compared the vast outback, where communication is hard and rough, meaning in case of an emergency it takes a while for the necessary help to get there.

Dangers from Non-insect Arthropods

Talking about spiders, the world’s most famous spiders are the black widows, the common house spiders, daddy-long-legs or cellar spiders, the garden orb-weaving spiders, harvestman spiders, yellow garden spiders, wolf spiders and huntsman spiders. People rear Tarantulas as pets, but even poisonous pet Tarantulas can turn out to be massive headaches, if they are let out of their cages by an accident.

The Sydney funnel-web spider’s defensive toxic venom, is a dangerous asset of the said creature. Thankfully, there have been no deaths from its bite since 1981, when the anti-venom was developed. When the spider infestation is on a massive scale in a house or a commercial property, spider control, needs to be called to deal with the issue, especially if the non-insect arthropods are of the venomous variety. Dealing with the infestation resonates the hygiene and the cleanliness of the property to the outside word.

Other Dangerous Animals

More and more deaths are caused by the European Honey Bee, whose sting isn’t as strong as some of the animals on this list, but could be lethal due to the allergic reactions that crop up from the sting. Moreover the outback has a whole list of dangerous animals not mentioned above, like the Redback Spider and the Freshwater Crocodile, who is safer compared to his saltwater brothers who are massive, unpredictable and cunning man-eaters. In addition to the animals, the outback’s scorching heat rays that cause dehydration and heat stroke, the Uluru – Ayers Rock climbing that cause heart attacks, and the endless desert areas you can get lost in with no sense of direction, can be the causes of a person’s untimely death.

So you need to take measures to safeguard for pest control at Narre Warren yourself within your house, as well as when you are traveling around, especially to the vast outback desert area.
