Did you know that spiders are arachnids, and not insects. Scorpions, mites, ticks, and harvestmen are all part of the arachnid family. Wash the area with mild soap and water. If you get bit by an arachnid, apply a cool, damp cloth to the bite. Elevate the bite if it is on a limb. Seek out medical attention as soon as you can if you know you were bitten by a venomous spider, or if serious symptoms start to develop after a few hours, you should go to the doctors.
