Despite their often large and hairy appearance, huntsman spiders are not considered to be dangerous spiders. As with most spiders, they do possess venom, and a bite may cause some ill effects. However, they are quite reluctant to bite, and will usually try to run away rather than be aggressive. In houses they perform a useful role as natural pest controllers.
Some people may think of huntsman spiders as ‘tarantulas’. However, they are not related to the large hairy ground dwelling spiders that are normally called tarantulas.
