If you’re scared of spiders, you’re not alone. In fact, in the US, 1 in 10 people are affected by a phobia, and 40% of those phobias are related to bugs. If one of those people is you, here’s the bad news – there are nearly 40,000 different types of spiders in the world, and almost all of them are venomous.

Of course, very few of those venomous spiders produce a poison toxic enough to cause harm to humans at all. And since the use of antivenom became commonplace in the 1950’s, the instances of people falling victim to seriously dangerous spiders are practically non-existent. Which isn’t to say you shouldn’t be careful if you come across any of those known to be toxic to humans. So, what should you do the next time you see one?

- Spider bites of any kind aren’t as common as you would think, considering the countless urban legends and stories on the internet.
- And even if a spider wanted to bite a person, few of them have teeth strong enough to puncture the skin.
- Spiders are a vital part of not only the outdoor ecosystem, but the indoor one as well.
- Inside your house right now there are anywhere from a dozen to 200 species of arthropods going about their business, and you weren’t even aware of any of them until right now.
- Most of these spiders live quiet, happy, secretive lives out of our sight and mind. The most common are “cobweb” and “cellar” spiders.
- Less common are barn spiders, who write messages in their webs to help the talking pig they’ve befriended win a medal at the state fair.
- Spiders will chow down on just about anything they catch. And most of the bugs they catch are probably more annoying, or likely to harm you, than it is.
- If you find yourself in the rare position where a spider does manage to get a piece of you, here’s what you want to do. First, if you can, don’t slap or squash, but trap it. Try to isolate it and get it into a container or baggy.
- This way you can identify the species and figure out what treatment, if any, will be needed.
- Usually, an ice pack is the only treatment you need - however, if you do experience any symptoms like nausea, sweating, muscle spasms or increasing pain, go get medical help right away.
