Insects and spiders in houses survey

How do you feel about insects and spiders in your house and garden?

With summer just around the corner you may start noticing more insects and spiders around your house and garden. Everybody feels differently about these creepy crawly house guests; they may not bother you or you might hate the sight of them!

I am leading a team of researchers from Macquarie University and the University of Sydney and we want to know which insects and spiders are living in and around your home, and which products (if any) you use to control them. By taking part in our survey, you will help us develop guidelines for people to effectively and safely manage insects and spiders around their homes. You will also have the chance to win one of five $100 Coles Myer group gift vouchers!

If you live in Sydney and are curious about the insects and spiders living around your house, you will also have the opportunity to volunteer your household for a biodiversity survey conducted by researchers from Macquarie University.
