There Are Safer Ways To Kill Black Widows
Black widow spiders are some of the most dangerous arachnids around. They have a stout, venomous bite that can sometimes be fatal. However, the symptoms are not always so severe. On many occasions, they include but are not limited to…
• Joint/Muscle Pain
• Fever, Swelling, And Sweating
• Breathing Difficulties
• Nausea And Vomiting
That is not to take away from the dangerousness or severity of the situation. Each bite is unique, and every person reacts to them differently. Hence, if you come in contact with one of these spiders and it nips you, it is of the utmost importance to seek medical attention.
Of course, more often than not, these black widows hide out in obscure locations away from humans. Most bites occur by accident. For instance, a person may not notice the web and place their hand in harm’s way. In turn, the spider will do what comes naturally, which is protect its home. Wouldn’t you do the same if an intruder was coming through the front door or a window?
