Wolf Spiders

Wolf spiders are venomous and their venom is poisonous. Bites that penetrates the skin can cause serious pain, swelling and itchiness. Some people only experience the symptoms for a few minutes while others get a wound that takes a few days to heal.

Hobo Spiders

Because hobo spider bites are often mistaken for the brown recluse spider bite, it is always a good idea to bring in the spider if possible when seeking medical attention, which should be immediately after any spider bite.

Brown Recluse Spiders

Like the black widow spider, the brown recluse spider bites in defense and does not bite humans instinctively. They will bite humans when the clothing they are hiding in is worn. The brown recluse spider bite is painful and can produce an open, ulcerating sores even death.
