 Washington?

Hey guys, I’ve just moved to Washington state, and I was wondering if any of you had any helpful links up your sleeves? I’ve already handled about 3 different species of spiders here, and I’m thinking it’d be a good idea to know if there are any I shouldn’t be touching. (Other than the obvious black widow and brown recluse.) I don’t know if they have any dangerous species here I’m not familiar with, and I’d hate to learn the hard way and get bitten by something unpleasant.

Thanks!

I could not find anything clearly outlining dangerous species, however this is a list of ALL spiders in the washington area that are native to Washington... Watch out it is bigger than you think!

Click Here!

Hope this helps, and hope the move went well!

Dang, that is a long list! Thanks for the link! Now I just have to cross reference all known dangerous species in the US with that list. Hopefully there aren’t too many to check. Haha
