None of the orb weaving spiders have venom that is very toxic to human beings. Their bites are not medically significant. These spiders are beneficial to humans because they catch insect pests that eat crops, bother livestock, and even may bite human beings.

No, I'm just kidding. They are at very low risk for humans. But you still shouldn't eat one.

MADE YOU SCROLL! HAHA
