    all spiders are poisonous... its more a matter of whether or not that poison is dangerous to us
    in most cases it isnt... at most causing mild swelling, itching and moderate pain at the bite

    most spiders are also not aggressive toward humans

    overall they serve to help humans, by eating other pests, far more than they harm us


    here is a chart

    Fuck me, I've spent most of my life living in the woods and I always believed wolf spiders to be harmless. I should've taken a pic of the diamond back rattler I scraped off the road and through in the ditch just 10 minutes ago.

    essentially they are
    they cant kill you
    they are non aggressive
    they rarely bite people
    in the rare occurrence that they do bite all that happens is some mild pain and swelling
    wolf spiders will usually flee (quickly)

    We have TONS of black widows here. Holy shit they are everywhere. In trash cans, in the tool shed, under your car, under your picnic table.

    What about Tarantulas? My father-in-law finds them on the side of the road on occasion.

    When I was in AZ train for volvo we had to do an engine swap out of an S60 and there were nothing but black widows underneath that hood we were lucky not to be bit.

    black widows can be dangerous
    while not outwardly aggressive they will attack if bothered or provoked... their venom is a neurotoxin that causes muscle contraction resulting in pain and cramping... this can be quite painful, but it is extremely unlikely to be fatal ( No one in the United States has died from a black widow spider bite in over 10 years.)


    tarantulas are not dangerous to humans... they are generally not aggressive and their venom has almost no effect on humans... so aside from the initial minor pain of the bite there is little more to be concerned of... you have more to fear from household pets

    yeah thats bullshit... on both accounts

    they can indeed bite... it is barely noticeable... but they can
    and their venom is very weak
