12 Common Myths That Are Not True

2. Deadly Daddy


The common “daddy long-legs” spider is often rumored to have the most deadly venom of all spiders. “Rumored” might be lending more credibility to this myth than it deserves. This particular spider can bite a person, but the worst that is likely to happen is a mild burning sensation. The spiders you really need to watch out for are varieties such as the brown recluse, whose bite can result in a gaping wound that is difficult to heal.
