Black Widow Spider
How dangerous are these things? And how can you keep them away from you! Let’s take a closer look!
IF a black widow spider has bit you or someone you are with, don’t panic! In the last 10 years, no one has died from a black widow spider bite! Often times the black widow will not inject any venom into the bite---therefore no serious symptoms develop. Make sure the wound is washed with soap and water to prevent infection.
If the muscle starts to cramp, then the person needs to be taken to the closest hospital. Sometimes if a young child or the elderly has been bitten, they may be admitted overnight for observation and treatment. The treatment will include medications to help muscle cramps, spasms, and any pain that happens because of the bite. Using black widow antivenin is seldom required.
