Treatment for the Female RedBack Spider’s Bite
The female, which makes a loose web in rubbish, unsewered toilets or under houses, is to watch out for. She has a bite that is toxic and can be painful. The bite area can have swelling (but you may not see the actual bite marks), and can cause nausea and vomiting. If you are bitten by a redback, try not to panic. I know everyone says this, but you should just put a bandage on the bite mark and seek medical advice.
