Everyone fears spiders, and that fear is probably unfair. Very few spiders bite humans, most that do only produce a reaction similar to a mosquito bite, and even the most venomous spiders rarely cause any life threatening disease.

Every year, hundreds of people are bitten by black widows and most need medical attention to avoid more serious complications.
