Default working in attics to run cables without being bitten!

Hi,

Apologies if this question seems a little pathetic, but...as an Electrician here in the UK, I'm always climbing into small, enclosed, damp, dark roof spaces full of spider webs, insects and stuff like that.

I'm planning to work in Australia this year and I was wondering how an Aussie spark does this sort of thing without getting bitten by snakes, spiders etc...
Do Aussie Electricians wear boiler suits when doing this sort of work?

Or do you just dive in and hope for the best?
