Highly venomous Redback Spider found in Tuba,Benguet; invasive species from Australia.
Redback spiders rarely bite humans, and when disturbed, they often try to escape or fake death by curling their legs and falling to the ground. A Redback Spider bite has the potential to cause death, especially in young children, and any bite should be treated with extreme caution.
The redback spider (Latrodectus hasselti), also known as the black widow of Australia, is a species of highly venomous spider believed to have originated in South Australia or neighboring deserts in Western Australia, but is now found throughout Australia, Southeast Asia Asia and New Zealand, with colonies elsewhere outside Australia.
