Gomez used a bobby pin and a cotton swab to get the spider out of his ear, and he counted the legs to make sure he'd retrieve them all. Spiders have eight legs. After removing the spider, Gomez did not go to the doctor, and he's hoping for no more surprises in his ear: He now sleeps with earmuffs on. This costs the spider much less time and energy than building a large, elaborate web, according to Linda Rayor, an assistant professor of entomology at Cornell University. Some spiders also use gossamer to make protective nests or cocoons, and some suspend themselves on silk strands so they can travel distances of at least several feet, carried by the wind.
And some even recycle they eat their own web once it has served its purpose. Scientists have long tried to understand the mechanisms that spiders use to make their silk, and have so far been unsuccessful in attempts to recreate the silk in laboratories. What makes the silk so difficult to artificially recreate is the make-up of its complex protein molecules and repetitive DNA sequences.
When my wife and I first moved into our home, about 8 years ago, a lady who was walking near our house asked if we could take her to the convinced store a few miles down the road. I said I would give her a ride and she was supposed to be picked up by a friend there. On the way to the store I noticed the was picking at her leg in my car, I looked over and her leg looked like it was rotting. There was a large zombie flesh looking hole in her calf. She said a spider had bitten her a few days before, but she wasn't worried about it.
I pleaded with her to let me take her to the hospital. She refused. I never saw her again, but I always wondered if it was a brown recluse bite on her leg. I am honestly not too afraid of spiders I am however uneasy about any kind of bee.
I always seem to get stung They seem so aggressive. Spiders are venomous not poisonous. Venomous organisms deliver or inject venom into other organisms, using a specialized apparatus of some kind usually fangs or a stinger. Poisonous organisms, on the other hand, do not deliver their toxins directly. The entire body, or large parts of it, may contain the poisonous substance.
These organisms may be harmful when eaten or touched. Spiders are starting to move more now because believe it or not they know fall and cooler weather is coming. I don't know where they lie on the venom chart, but I do know they have some type of venom. I hate spiders with a passion, so I can't wait to move out of this house. They don't just hide in corners or boxes for me, they pop up in the middle of the bathroom, back porch, kitchen, etc. I have to constantly look up to see if anything is dangling from a web.
I just had a Brown Recluse crawl down my leg while standing at the sink! Which is why I am here. I was bit on the wrist when I was very young, and was in the hospital for 5 days. I'm hoping I would have felt this thing bite me. I am itching all over now! Are they usually painful when they bite? I didn't feel it when I was a kid, which is why I'm asking! I live in Maryland. And I had a black widow in my bedroom.
Compared to all of the other spiders I've killed it was x more aggressive. It would try to attack the my shoe, but my steel toe won the fight. It's easy to tell the difference between widows and non venomous spiders, and I know almost nothing about spiders, that widow was the only spider that tried to attack my foot. Sooo if they try to attack you chances are they are dangerous. Hey Everyone Where the heck did you all go?
I'm here with my pal Maddie She says her grandmother died from a tarantula EEEW, and I know a rhyme. I live in ky, so I see a lot of big, wolf spiders.
I also see this chubby, brown, fuzzy spider I see them and it's around the size of a mouse I don't know if it's toxic or what but it scares the freaking crap out of me It crawls really fast I sincerely hate and respect these nightmarish creatures Anyone write back In California, Daddy Long Legs are spiders they live in webs and vibrate really fast if threatened.
Crane Flies are flying insects that look like giant mosquitoes we've also called them mosquito eaters. Daddy Long Legs aren't supposed to be venomous - I heard that they can be but their mouths are too small to bite humans. Don't take my word for it though. Daddy long legs aren't poisonous at all kid. They're actually called a crane fly. Just a hideous fly really. Everybody has loved it.
