How to recognize spiders?

There are more than 600 species of spiders in Quebec (Paquin et al. 2010). Although they have a very beneficial role in nature, they sometimes invade the interior or exterior of homes. In addition to causing panic, they can sometimes inflict bites without posing a risk to human health. There are no spiders with a dangerous potential for humans in Quebec. However, cases of presence of black widows have already been listed near the American border as well as in other Quebec cities, notably in packaging of fruit or imported goods. If you think you have been bitten by a black widow, remain calm and seek medical attention immediately. poison Control Center .
