I had a bicycle leaned up against the vine-covered wall on the shady side of my garage. I put my hand on the seat to move the bike and felt a pin-prick sensation on on my thumb. It started stinging. I saw the BW spider crawling out from under the seat of the bike. The stinging quickly become so intense that I took a safety pin and started digging where a small "blood blister" had formed just under the surface of the skin. I ripped the skin and then the blood blister came out like a tiny mass of jelly, stuck on the point of the pin, and the stinging stopped immediately. I didn't get sick and my thumb didn't drop off. The bite never bothered me again. I can't recommend this as treatment for a BW bite, but it worked for me. In hindsight, I should have at least called my doctor. Well, back into the garden, all you arachnid-phobes! My BW bite was not as painful as a bad sunburn, and most of us will likely get more sunburns than spider bites this summer!
