White Tail Spider Bites?

I regularly come across reports of bad reactions, infections, abscesses, and ulceration that are claimed to be caused by white tail spiders. A recent report can be found here.

There have been studies carried out investigating hospitalizations of people with such reactions and infections. The studies found no link to confirmed white tail spider bites. Few people are able to positively identify the cause of the ‘bite’ as a white tail.

Have you a story about being bitten by white tails? Whether you had a bad experience or had no reaction I would be interested to hear from you.

What does a polite white tail spider say?
Fangs very much.
