Hello. We live in the Ottawa, ON. area. My poor husband was bitten on the neck by this spider that I think may be a shamrock spider. She sure was big! No harm came to her….my husband actually returned her to the area where she had come from. I just love your website…keep up the great work!
Thanks for your letter and Shamrock Spider photo. Since you didn’t mention any ill effects, we are assuming your husband is fine. Many spiders can bite, though only a few cause significant problems.
