Posted by Good Infographics | Posted on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 | Posted in ,

The following infographic from the folks over at Bulwark Pest Control identify which spiders in the United States are dangerous and which ones are not so dangerous. Hopefully to the relief of many, there are only TWO families of dangerous spiders in the US, the Brown Recluse, and the Black Widow. The bites of these two spiders should be feared.

There are many more spiders which will bite you, but the rest of the biting spiders in the US are not nearly so toxic as the Widow and the Recluse. However all United States spiders can be considered venomous/poisonous spiders. As a rule of thumb, don’t eat spiders and they won’t eat you.
