Well, having been bit by a couple different varieties of spiders, it happened again a couple days ago… a nasty bite and swelling! Wife thinks it was a black widow (would be the 2nd time for me) I didn’t catch the critter.
Just kind of curious how many other folks have been bitten and more importantly, what you do to avoid.
I for one, wear a jump suit and a “spray sock” over my head along with a dust mask when accessing crawlspaces and attics, although I’m not as consistent in the attics :roll:
The jump suit and spray sock only leave a small area vulnerable… a band at about the collar line… and low and behold that’s where I got bit. A stupid 1/2" opening and WHAM!
Fever, chills, nausea and a lil swelling to boot! I’m fine for now after some anti-histamines and some other over the counter stuff. I’m Lucky!!
I will try and remember to wipe a little bug of bug repellant on my neck from now on. Total of 3 fairly nasty bites and who knows how many others…
I’ve been careful after getting a really nasty infection on my leg from a bite, but…
Anyone got a better idea? We crawl under houses and lot’s o places where critters hide. Just a thought and be careful out there!
