Reader spins out some spi­der ad­vice af­ter find

7 Days in Dubai - - STYLE -

Dear Joanna (‘Hor­ror over spi­der find’ - 7DAYS, March 29), I read the ar­ti­cle with in­ter­est on the Brown Widow spi­der you found in your home. This spi­der is com­monly found in South Africa and Asia and parts of Amer­ica. Maybe you un­wit­tingly brought her over at some point from your home? I would not panic as she is a very shy spi­der and non-ag­gres­sive un­less pro­voked. The Brown Widow will in­ject hardly any venom in hu­mans so she is pretty harm­less un­less you are al­ler­gic to the bite.
