Spider Bites

One of our members, Amanda, who was helping with the composting work

last weekend, said she suffered a very nasty bite from a spider, which

was probably a False Widow. Her arm swelled up badly and there are two

fang marks clearly visible. She is OK now, but this is a warning to

wear gloves and long sleeves and trousers when working in areas where

spiders may be lurking.
