have you been bitten by a False Widow?

Hi everyone!


A few months ago i was bitten by a baby false widow spider, it must have gone onto my jumper while hanging out to dry and i put it straight on after taking it off, an hour or so later i was having a chat and felt something tickle my neck, just out of instinct i touched my neck and when i felt something i swiped the spider off, it went onto the table, normally, spiders would run away but not this spider! no he reared up at me showing aggression which startled me and it was then that i realised how different this spider was! it was bigger than a money spider, was brown in colour and had the distinctive markings of a false widow! i took it outside still being very agressive and luckily havent come across it since! lol


about 10 minutes after i looked in the mirror and my neck had swelled right up and could actually see the spider bite! i think it bit me when brushing it off and feel very lucky that he was a baby as my neck was very painful and throbbed like crazy for weeks!
