So, I don't know about anyone else but where I live we have a ton of brown recluse spiders. They're the only medically relevant spider in the area. Every now and again we get a black widow but that's super rare. Anyway, so people freak out about those spiders. They tell you that you'll die instantly if you get bit or all your flesh will rot away. It's ridiculous. People don't want to accept that that just isn't the case. In truth that can happen but it's more like if you're allergic, same as a bee sting. I've been bitten by a recluse and it didn't do anything. I had what amounted to a blood blister except it was hard. It fell off and there was a small hole but it healed just like any other wound. I'm not sensitive to bee stings so I'm assuming that kinda transfers over to these style bites as well. These spiders are another spider that people think are highly aggressive. That's another false one and another one I can use personal experience to speak on. The other night I found a recluse in my bath tub. I have a catch and release policy with spiders so I throw them outside when I find them. Recluses though, I dunno. Since their venom can be an issue I worry about my pets so I tend to put them down. Anyway, I grabbed my tongs and grabbed the recluse by a leg. Fun fact, they apparently drop legs when grabbed. So, I grabbed it and the leg just popped off and started twitching. I grabbed the recluse again but no more legs came off so I guess they can only do that trick once, I dunno. Anyway, I'm holding this recluse with my tongs and it's just frozen, just chilling there. If they were as blood thirsty as people claim this thing would have been trying to destroy my tongs but no. It was pretending to be a statue hoping I would forget it was there and let it go. The moral of the story is that people are dumb and need to educate themselves about things. Rant complete lol.
