vary depending upon the type of spider doing the biting. Some are serious and require medical attention, while others are harmless. When it doubt, get checked out. Answer There are some certain types of spiders such as black widow, brown recluse, tarantulas and those type of spiders which can be very serious if your bitten by. The best idea is to make sure that you can try and catch it for proper identification through the hospital, so that they are able to treat with antivenom or other necessary products to reverse the problem of the bite. Also, make sure that you keep the person who has been bitten very calm, as excitement could cause the venom to spread throughout the body.
