Most spiders are not harmful to human beings. These include granddaddy long legs and regular spiders that you may see running around outside and possibly inside your house. However, there are two main spiders that could kill people with one little sting. These include the black widow spider and the brown recluse spider.

The black widow spider has a red dot on its body and is black all over. The brown recluse may be more difficult to recognize and it is probably more dangerous than the black widow. This is because the brown recluse hides in dark places. It is common for a brown recluse to hide in someone’s shoes. Then when the person puts on the shoes, the spider bites the person.

There are a lot of people who fear spiders probably because of how they look like. Spiders have the tendency to flee when they are scared. A lot of spiders have venom but only 30 of the thousands of spiders available have the ability to actually produce venom that will pose as a threat to people.

Take note that a lot of people are allergic to spiders so they can become comfortable. When spiders do bite, they may cause people to experience mild pain. Remember that spiders will only bite when they feel that there is nothing else that they can do. If you do not do anything to spiders, they will not do anything to you.
