Not sure I buy the airplane crash statistics. Every time you hear about a plane crashing, it’s more like 95% die rather than 95% survive.

Steve Tingle, probably the White-tail? Causes a form of necrosis, decomposing flesh. The Australian equivalent to the Black Widow is the Red back and hardly a danger. Many people bitten don't even know it!

Julie Allen, I know of someone who was bitten by a Redback spider, he went to the E.D. and they told him to go home and if he got any symptoms to come back again, and he got no symptoms, so either he was unsure if it was a Redback or he did not get bitten, who knows.

There's a theory that the popularity of cats in ancient Egypt obeyed to the fact that they protected crops from rats. Some years ago, a huge warehouse firm of London suffered enormous losses because of the rodents. They spent thousands of pounds on traps and poison, with little success. An employer then suggested that they kept instead a "patrol" of cats in the premises. They did so recruiting four felines, even hired a veterinarian to look after them... and they saved a mint, spending about one tenth of what they paid before for poisons and traps.

I was bitten by a brown recluse (fiddle back) spider. I didn't die, but I sure was in a lot of pain. "Even though the fear of flying remains one of the most popular human phobias" Popular? People don't choose to be afraid to fly.

Steve Tingle, I've been bitten by a redback. Stung like a wasp initially then my finger and hand went numb. Within twenty minutes I had antivenom and I was home in two hours.

Sean Philips, I am sure that there are spiders in other parts of the world that are a lot more venomous.

Steve Tingle, There have been no deaths in Australia from a confirmed spider bite since 1979. An effective antivenom for Redback Spiders was introduced in 1956, and one for funnel-web spiders in 1980. These are the only two spiders that have caused deaths in Australia in the past.

I believe that the worst spiders are from Australia, the Funnel Web spider and another one (I've forgotten it's name) are quite likely to kill you, well if you aren't careful.
