Spiders, plenty of them.

Otherwise, not any different from other metro areas...if you live near green areas, then you'll have mozzies in the spring.

there are plenty of dragons in Melbourne - be careful. On a serious note, I think most of the cities are pretty safe to a very large extent and there is not need to be paranoid about insects and stuff. I think there are bigger issues for you to worry about., like say, the job market in Australia which is shrinking due to the financial crisis worldwide.

Mozzie= mosquito...there's a few of them around green areas in the warm and wet months, spring in particular.

And flies...there's a lot of them here, and they're annoying! fortunately they disappear in winter, but there's plenty in the warm and wet months.

There wont be too many outright dangerous bugs in metro areas...the spiders can be very big though!

as long as u stay in the cities, you hardly need to worry about anything except for cockroaches. But, if you want to explore australia for dangerous things, you are in the right place.

Australia has all the most dangerous things in the world from spiders to snakes.

Read bill bryson's down under for more information :)

I guess roaches are the easiest to control. In UAE, also there used to be big roaches, but now due to frequent usage of pesticides in buildings, they are now vanished. Only in summer time you see a few little ones in the flats (once in a blue moon).

Wondering why roaches are not under control in Sydney. Aren't residential areas properly treated to eradicate them?
