White Tail Spiders Toxicity
The White Tailed Spider's bite is often related to severe, untreatable ulceration and skin lesions known medically as "necrotising arachnidism", however, this is largely a myth as confirmed by several case studies. Minor bacterial infection of the wound is most likely the cause of such cases of ulceration.
However, fact states that their bites usually cause an initial burning pain followed by swelling and itchiness of the bitten area. Occasionally, welts or blistering occurs.
Pest Control For White Tail Spiders
There are three successful methods of controlling White Tailed Spiders infesting your house.
1)Physically catching and removing any that you come across and by removing the webs of other smaller spiders, upon which they feed. Their favourite food source is the black house spider.

Like all spiders or insects if you take away their food source it makes other spiders and insect less likely to want to live there and breed.
3)The final way of reducing the amount of white tail spiders around the home is by introducing fly screens and locking them out and introducing a a dehumidifier into their environment. Like all insects and spiders they like to live in a humid environment. Dry out their environment and they find it less desirable to want to live there.
