There are many species of spiders found in Alaska, but evidence of any of them being poisonous are still missing. The spiders and insects have some toxin in their venom which is produced in order to kill their prey, but these toxins are in small amounts and can not kill humans. They may, however, be sufficient to cause allergic skin reactions.

Are These Allergic Reactions Anything To Worry About?
These reactions can cause itching and can turn the skin thin and allow the victim to become more prone to infection from bacteria. These spiders and insects can be found anywhere in the world and sit on dead decaying materials and then carry toxins from them. These insects can then transfer the bacteria to the human when biting them, and can cause more intense reactions because of this.

What Should I Do To Ease The Symptoms?
It is a good idea to apply hydrocortisone on the bite site if there is no infection along with anti-allergy medicines immediately after bite. If the bite site becomes infected, then apply topical antibiotics and take anti-allergy medicines.
