Few spiders are aggressive or venomous but you should be aware to keep you and your family safe.

For the most part, spiders are harmless and generally beneficial by keeping the insect populations in check. Spiders are seldom aggressive and bite only when threatened or injured and the venom of most is harmless. These predators live almost everywhere – on the ground, under rocks, inside and underneath playground equipment, among grasses, on plants, in tree branches, in underground caves and even on the water. Not all spiders spin webs, some live in burrows, which they line with silk, while others have no retreat at all. Living at close quarters with them can be problematic for humans as spiders frequently stray into dwellings or other indoor habitats, or may be accidentally introduced on firewood, laundry or flowers.
