Redback spider

Redback spiders are not aggressive, and rarely leave the web. However caution is advised as their bite is very poisonous and potentially fatal for children or the elderly.
After a bite, the onset of pain may be delayed for five minutes then increase in intensity. Subsequent symptoms vary but have included:
• nausea
• vomiting
• abdominal or generalised pain
• sweating
• restlessness
• palpitations
• weakness
• muscle spasm
• fever.
Anyone bitten by a redback spider should seek medical attention.
