Spider bites are a real concern for parents of young children and families that keep pets.
Venomous spiders, in general, will typically not bite you unless they feel threatened or provoked. Most spider bites are not considered to be harmful to humans.
Very few spider bites result in victims requiring urgent medical attention or treatment. However, North America does have a couple of spiders that can cause some real harm to animals and humans if bitten. For those living in the western half of the United States, such as California, Arizona and Nevada, there is a slightly higher likelihood of running into arachnids that can produce a bite that might pose a health risk. The warmer, drier, weather is key to these spiders surviving and Western Exterminator spider experts can help you deal with these spiders around your property.
Most spider bites will have little effect on people but some species can cause a reaction due to the venom injected. Spiders are not seeking humans to bite because they prefer to save their bites, and venom, to capture and incapacitate food. Humans are not on any spider's menu, so sometimes spiders will even provide "dry" bites that will be painful to deter further involvement, but not inject venom.
Most spider bites go unnoticed and cause no more than a mild reaction in people like inflammation of the skin, minor swelling and itching. Some spider bites however can lead to lots of pain, gangrene and even necrotic wounds.
