One family had to have their home fumigated after spotting the Brazilian wandering spider on a banana - but how dangerous is it?

It's a spider. It's made of three things, legs, fangs, and evil.

Of course it's dangerous!

I once had a Brazilian give me a four hour erection, but it wasn't no spider.

Spider thread eh?

Take a look at what I occasionally find in my vegetable garden...

Came across this little fella while picking tomatoes.  You want to be careful when sticking your hand into a tomato vine...

Really cool web though.  And it was excellent at catching pests.  If I knew where I could buy them, I'd probably do it and put a few in the gaden intentionally.  They'd probably be good at catching those GD Mexican bean beatles that ravaged my summer squash a few years back.

Cool.  A spider with a silhouette of an angry Marge Simpson on its abdomen.  Who knew?

Ahh banana spiders. Those are fun and pretty harmless. My buddy has a ton of them all over his ranch. We used to catch grasshoppers and throw them into the webs. They're fast little farkers! Bite the grasshopper, inject venom, and spin them completely in a few seconds.

Hmm... we call them garden spiders for obvious reasons, but who knows how many regional names they have.

asynchron: I like how the things we "need" to know about these spiders included very little about... Oh, say... How to identify them?


Let them bite you. If you get a 4 hour errection its a Brazilian wandering spider. If not... well it still might be.

buckler: I am glad to see the word "poisonous" not bandied about here instead of "venomous". Well done, all.


Except half the time they use "toxic" which is synonymous with poisonous.  Article fail.

Nope..  I wanted to say Golden-Orb Weaver, but that leads to a diff species..which is also referred to as the "Banana Spider"..

I had these all over, growing up..and, now, living on our two rural acres, I still have them everywhere..  :)  If I find them and they're *not* in my garden, I *very* careful catch and move them..no better pest control..and pretty to look at..  :)

We had one of those.  When you got close it would start oscillating the web back and forth.
Very cool....from 3 feet away.
