    Beautiful blog! My interest in insects is artistic, but as I let them inspire me, I should perhaps get to know them better. I’ll be reading regularly.

    My husband just got bit by one of these things. Do we need to worry? He has heart problems?

    Most spiders don’t produce a reaction. If signs of allergic reaction or other distress appear, it is wise to get medical attention.
