Can spiders hurt humans?
Most spiders do not harm humans, but there are some that are poisonous and can harm us if provoked. Some tarantulas have large fangs that can infect humans with poison if they are bitten. Some spiders, like the Black Widow and Brown Recluse are very deadly, and live in households alongside humans, but rarely come to harm them. So, some spiders can hurt humans, but most spiders prefer to keep their distance and will not harm people unless they are provoked.

No. No matter how large a spider is, it cannot eat a human being. Spiders digest their food externally which is why they wrap their meals in silk ... there is no way that any spider ever came close to hunting prey even the tenth size of the tiniest baby. . Most spider attacks on humans are really …defense. We aggravate or scare them, and frequently don't even see them -- even after the bite. Very few spiders are even aggressive enough to try and defend territory against humans. ( Full Answer )
First of all, although they are horrifying, they are not even spiders at all. They are called wind scorpions. wind scorpions are in the same group of animals as spiders, mites, ticks and true scorpions, but there are several differences between them. They do not carry any venom and could not kill a …human. However, it is easy for a camel spider bite to get infected which could later lead to death if left untreated. Mostly, they eat small rodents such as mice, or lizards. They are only called "camel spiders" because they live in the desert, just like camels do and, contrary to popular belief, only can have a body size of up to 6 inches. They legs often can get longer though. ( Full Answer )
this rarely happens but it could. when a human is sleeping. aspider could hang from a wall or on the celling but when the humanopens it's mouth for a breath of air. the spider can fall into it'smouth! the human will not wake up but it will sense something is intheir mouth. so while there dreaming in… the dream they could eatsomething like ice-cream. and accidentally eat the spider. >You are recalling a horror movie trailer, point by point, thatmost likely influenced you. There are no such anecdotes exceptintentional misleads. Spiders do not fall off the ceiling veryeasily, people don't sleep on their backs with their mouths openwide. Even if the extreme odds were overcome, and a spider fell landingdead center on an open mouth, the persons gag reflex would surelywake them. Ice cream? . +++ . As another has replied to the same question, no: It's an urbanmyth or old wives' tale. ( Full Answer )
No. Spiders don't do that. Check the site listed in links for more details. This one's a hoax and an urban legend that's been around for a very long time. Instead, you were bitten by a spider -- nothing more or less. Depending on the type of spider and your reaction to it, this may be nothing impo…rtant, or something that requires medical attention. First -- in the future, you might call the Poison Control number. Poison Control is open 24/7/365, is non-profit, and tremendously accurate. The number is: 800-222-1222 Now -- on to treatment and first aid for spiders: For minor bites as yours sounds like, Ice Pack it, take a mild painkiller, and don't scratch it if it itches. I'll post a reference question here when I go a little further with a page on Spider Bite REmedies. . ( Full Answer )
Pirate spiders are not dangerous to humans. They feed upon otherspiders and rarely other insects, but their venom is designed to beespecially toxic to other spiders which they kill by biting thelegs.
In Rare cases the black widow's and the brown recluse spiders can kill humans but it is extremely rare. Most of the time when bitten by one of these spiders you will be fine, even if you don't go see a doctor, however I highly recommend seeing a doctor immediately. Extremely skinny people and people… with high blood pressure are more likely to get severe problems/damage from the bite. However, most of the time you will be fine even without treatment (I still wouldn't risk it however). In reality spiders (kingdom: animal, phylum: Arthropoda (greek for jointed foot/appendage) class: Arachnida, order: Araneae) are our little friends who are a natural pest control (though can be considered pests as well by people with arachnophobia). In other word even though they're creepy as heck, they help us out quite a lot and demand our respect. I'm not saying don't step on spiders or anything(can't say that cause I'm terrified of them and if necessary I will kill them), I'm just saying unless absolutely necessary, leave them alone.

In South America spiders are eaten as food. . In most countries they can be irrationally killed because of arachnophobia . . While spiders are not usually deadly, they can be venomous and therefore considered dangerous.
Yes. There are 40,700 species in the Smithsonian's spider catalog, and the average number of spiders per acre of land, worldwide, has been estimated at between 20 and 50,000. At 20,000, the number of spiders in about 305,00 acres (477 sq. mi. or 1.234 sq. km.) would outnumber the human race.
Yes. My best friend got bitten by one when she was young. It is all swollen.
Deforestation for forestry and agriculture reduces the monkeys' rainforest habitat, and some are killed for food.
Every spider has fangs and/or teeth, since all of them are carnivores (meat-eaters). However, the fangs/teeth of most species are not strong or long enough to penetrate the skin of a human. This means that all spiders can bite humans but most of them will be harmless (you won't even feel them). Wh…en the fangs/teeth are strong and long enough you will feel a bite. Important to know is that although spiders can bite, it does not mean that they will bite. Most spiders will only bite to defent themselves, but not before they try to escape first..

Like any monkey, a spider monkey can be vicious if provoked, and they are stronger than their small size would indicate. But they prefer to avoid conflicts with humans.
Yes. We're very big and they're very small. They usually bite people because they think their lives are in danger and are trying to survive.
It won't hurt you but it will hurt the spider and most of the time kill it
Spiders kill many small insects. If there were no spiders, the number of these insect verities would go unchecked and the ecosystem would fail. The plant eating bugs would eat all of the plants, and bugs like the mosquito would be in much greater numbers. Spiders are pretty important. But most crea…tures have an important role to fulfill.

well, it honestly depends on what kind of spider it is. there are a lot of spiders that are very dangerous and poisonous!
The answer is no. Spider monkeys do not hurt people. In their natural habitat, they are wonderous and playful creatures. They are active and adorable and very sweet. If someone is a threat, they may scamper away or make a screeching noise to ward off the threat. Some people, that do not understand t…he way of life, buy spider monkeys off a spider monkey breeder. Now this, in my opinion is a very wrong thing to do. They can be like a child and learn to do bad things. They may have tantrums and screech and some can bite or jump on the victim, but this is their way of playing in the wild, so you have to deal with it. So to sum it all up, no, spider monkeys do not hurt people unless they are raised improperly or raised in a house. Thanks for asking! -Dr. Alice Lamont DVM ( Full Answer )
well no but if the fish touches the spider then he would get mad. Also I don't think spiders should go under water. So i would say probably. I think they do, because a small spider got into my sister's beta fish tank, and we later found the fish dead. :( So, I think it's highly possible.
A Goldenrod spider is extremely venomous but one bite would not be enough to kill a human. But it is possible if you are allergic to it.
No they can't. They need oxygen to breath. So for instance if a person should swallow them, not only is there oxygen in your body for them to breath but the acid in your stomach can kill them. People swallow bugs all the time and nothing happens.
There are an enormous number of spiders in the world and they typically eat bugs (or any animal that lands in their web). Without spiders, the insect population would be higher.
They are venomous and the bite causes symptoms such as swelling and itching especially for those who are allergic.

Spiders don't bite... they just crawl up your legs. Well that's in England anyway. Some are quite deadly animals though. Like ones in America they could be quite dangerous. :)
Many types of spiders have venom that can cause serious health problems in humans. The venom of some species can kill if not treated.
Cats can eat spiders, this will not hurt the cat (but will definitely hurt the spider). Most cats would rather eat their cat food, but there is a certain excitement in catching your own prey, even if it is just a spider.
Most humans hurt other humans when they get mad. They could get into a fist fight,shoot a gun, and do many other things.
Yes, a garden spider can bite a human, but it will not harm the human.
No, they're afraid of humans. Wouldn't you be if a living thing at least thirty times your size was walking around you? Are you stupid?
No not at all. It's a quick pinch that you barely feel. I have them. They're awesome and didn't hurt a bit.

First of all the "camel spider" isn't really a spider; it's a spider kin called a solafugid (means "flees from the Sun," which it certainly does). Its venomous bite is painful, but not deadly, to humans. Stories about its anesthetic powers are not true.
