Arachnids - Arachnida

Spiders in North America, with just a few exceptions are harmless to humans. The Widows, Recluse, and Hobo Spiders are the only real dangerous North American spiders. All spiders have some venom, used in killing their insect prey. They only bite if they feel trapped, or if someone is playing with the spider. In most cases, a bite is no worse than a bee sting.
