No.. they will not kill you!!! Venom toxicity: The bite of an Orb-Weaving spiders is of low risk (mildly toxic) to humans. Orb-Weaving spiders are a non-aggressive group of spiders. Seldom bite. BUT be careful not to walk into their webs at night - the fright of this spider crawling over one's face can be terrifying and may cause a heart attack.
