Spider Information
Black Widow or Black House Spiders  
 
Black House or Widow Spider Black House or Widow Nest
These are timid spiders with bites occurring infrequently, but may be quite painful with local swelling.  Nausea, vomiting, sweating and giddiness sometimes occur.
Use an ice pack to relieve local pain and seek medical attention is the symptoms persist.

Redback bites occur frequently.  They can cause serious illness and have caused deaths.  Because of their small jaws, many bites are ineffective.  Common early symptoms are pain, sweating (always including local sweating at the bite site), muscular weakness, nausea and vomiting.  An antivenom is available - no deaths have occurred since its introduction.
Apply an ice pack to the bitten area to relieve the pain.  Do not apply a pressure bandage (venom movement is slow and pressure worsens pain).  If possible, collect the spider for positive identification.  Seek medical attention.

Bites usually result only in transient local pain and swelling.  However, some Shield Huntsman Spider bites can result in prolonged pain, inflammation, headache, vomiting and irregular pulse rate.
An ice pack may relieve local pain, however, seek medical attention if the symptoms persist.
