Do black widows bite?

2 Answers

YES. The black widow spider bite produces a protein venom (poison) that affects your nervous system. Some people are slightly affected by it, but others may have a severe response. Bites are rarely fatal. You may feel severe pain, burning, swelling, and redness at the site.

These spiders aren't aggressive and only bite when they feel threatened. The bites usually aren't fatal, but they can still cause some serious and uncomfortable symptoms.
