Facts and myths about your favorite
roommate: spiderbro.
Some Facts
Spiders are not poisonous (harmful to eat, breathe,
or touch).

through bite or sting), as this is how they break
down their food. Less than IX of spider species are
dangerous to humans.
Pet spiders have the ability to recognize their

species from spiders that live outside. Many indoor
species cannot survive outdoors. .',

mares why,)
There are three species that can be termed Daddy-
and none of these species are remotely
dangerous. Only one of these species is a spider.
The Harvestman
A harmless arachnid related to spiders.
The harvestman is not venomous at all. It does not
spin webs or have silk glands. There are no venom
glands in their chelicerae (fangs). Instead, the
chelicerae are use more like grasping claws. Its
only defense is excreting a fluid.
True spiders, but harmless to humans.
Cellar spiders are , but they are
virtually harmless. They are true spiders, known
for building cobwebs in high corners of showers
or cellars). Like all spiders, cellar spiders are
venomous, but their bite causes little more than

Myth: Spiders often bits people in the night.
The conspicuous, Itchy bites left an a person' s skin in the
morning are most often caused by parasitic
bedbugs. These Insects actually come to you when you' re

and are known for chasing and screaming at ursus-
pecking people.
Again, these animals are not true spiders, but arachnids
related to scorpions. They are not venomous, and compared
with scorpions from the same habitat, they are relatively small.
Camel spiders don' t scream, as It has been claimed, but some
members of the species produce rattling sounds with their
chelicerae. Being desert animals, they often move to find
shade. Even if that shadow happens to be yours.
Myth: I don' t have bugs in my house. All I ever see
are spiders.
What do you think those spiders are eating? Parasitic and
insects have evolved to avoid human notice. Spiders
are usually more conspicuous because they make no special
effort to hide themselves from humans. They' re only designed
to hide from their prey, which usually has poor vision.
Recluses and Hobos
are still bad news-
Recluse and hobo spider venom can cause
localized necrosis (tissue death) in the area the
bite was received. In worst case scenarios,
without treatment, people have been known to
lose limbs to recluse bites.

I'm not sure how it happened but a while back I got bit on my nutsack by a brown recluse. I didn't even know about it until the skin started to abscess and then starting falling off, by the time I got treatment I had a hole in my sack about the size of a pencil eraser. Was the worst pain I've ever felt when the thing ruptured and oozed pus and blood for a good day or two. S'all good now though, can't even tell it happened.

By the way this story might be gross.

Y'know what would be interesting?

If someone could provide source to a study that would explain why humans are innately repulsed/disgusted/in general made to feel uneasy by sights such as spiders moving (especially LOTS of spiders clumped together, each with their own 8 legs).

******* hell, when I was little even caterpillars made me shiver. Once even saw a miriapod that was pretty big, why I remain puzzled is that the simple sight of all those legs moving made me had an unpleasant reaction.

Seriously, I understood animals with powerful coloring, that translates into "POISONOUS", especially for other animals.
But what the heck is up with our fear for **** that has many legs that move fast?!
