Spider Bites


Out of 40,000 known genera  200 species of spider are capable of giving a potentially lethal bite.



The venom from a spider bite can cause a necrotic reaction to the body, in other words the premature death of cells and the skin starts to eat itself.

Spider venom comes in two forms, neurotoxic which attacks the nervous system, Black Widow and Funnel Web Spider bites fall into this category. Necrotic venom attacks the skin cells , Hobo Spiders and Brown Recluse bites are included here.
