I have seen the spider with the white body with red on it.  Were the legs red? I had 2 of them I have sen in the last 2 days, One was outside my door. It had a web attached to my house. The other one was in the house in a corner in a wed. I have a bite on my knee. It gave me the symptoms of a blood clot. It made my leg hot, swollen and discolored. But it was all the way down the leg not just around the bite. Was it this spider? Not sure but what ever spider it was it had good size fangs according to the holes in my knee

If it has eight legs then yes it is a spider. Aracnids(spiders) have eight legs where all insects  have only six legs.

An arachnid has eight legs.  Spiders are arachnids, but not all arachnids are spiders.  For instance, Harvestmen (also called Daddy Longlegs) have eight legs but are not spiders.

Try this website, you might have some luck: www.whatsthatbug.com time you see one, take a picture.  It might help with identification.

There is no spider which has a red body completely. However 'Latrodectus Hasselti (Red-back spider)' a potentially dangerous spider habituating in Australia, has a black body with a distinct red longitudinal stripe on its abdomen. The female spider is about a centimetre long while the male is relatively shorter, measure 3 to 4 millimetre long. The redback spider is known to possess neurotoxins which are toxic to human beings. Anti-venom for redback bites is available commercially. Red-backs feed on other insects. They are able to capture bigger animals like small lizards and king crickets also, which become entangled in the web. The male red-back spider lives for about 6 or 7 months only while the female lives for about 3 years.

I just found a spider with a dark reddish orangish back. It belly looks black with what kinda looks like an exclamation point on it. Its legs aren;t very long and they look like they might have stripes on them. Does any one know what kind it might be and if its harmful?
