Spiders -

Spiders are found all over the world, and more than 40,000 different species of spiders have been identified. Spiders come in many different colors and can be found virtually everywhere.

Almost 99% of spider bites are considered harmless, but rarely the symptoms of a spider bite can include necrotic wounds, systemic toxicity and in very rare cases, death. The chief concern with a spider bite is the venom that is injected into the victim. A ‘dangerous’ spider possesses a venom that is toxic to humans and has the capability of delivering this venom in large quantities in a single bite. An especially well known ‘dangerous’ spider is the black widow spider. These spiders have a venom that contains a neurotoxin used primarily in defense of other predators in the insect world.

Black widow spiders will not instinctively bite humans, but when they do, the bite causes severe pain and a reaction that young children and the elderly are especially susceptible to. Most other spiders don’t pose a great health risk; however, a spider bite can be very unpleasant and uncomfortable and will irritate the skin.
