Bites That Kill
Land Down Under. Oz. Terra Australis Incognita. Straya. These are some of the popular monikers for the beautiful country of Australia.
This country is known to be a place for explorers and naturalists alike because a vast majority of this continent-country contains terrains where diversity of floras and faunas hasn’t been completely explored discovered.
And yet, the man was able to build settlements that started way back when it was discovered by the Europeans. The man decided to establish its own turf alongside different species: some friendly and some deadly, some of which are to be discussed below.
Australia is home to a wide variety of animals that can be very harmful and deadly to humans. Although with the advent and continuous breakthrough in medical science, anti-venom for bites and scratches from these animals, it was, later on, discovered that venom’s effects depend on the sensitivity of the person that was bitten, thus making the anti-venom useless. So, for these kinds of instances, development for fast and new anti-venom would be imperative. But time is of the essence when it comes to animal bites because, in a matter of minutes, a person could lose his life.
On top of the list is the Sydney funnel-web spider. This spider can be found in the wild but for some reason may also be found in a house. Considered as the most venomous spider in the world, a bite from this spider could mean certain death, especially for children for there was a case of a child dying after just 15 minutes from being bitten. A single bite from this spider is considered a medical emergency so an immediate medical response.
Next is the redback spider, a species that’s known to be responsible for a significant number of bites ranging from 2000-10,000 each year across Australia. This spider can be found almost everywhere and can also live inside your house or business premises.
Although not native to Australia, honey bee stings of about 100 could be fatal especially for people who have known cases of allergy to this animal. These animals could help people in pollinating flower and fruit-bearing trees but you wouldn’t want to find their hive in your garden or on your ceiling.
The red imported fire ants would not cause direct and instant death but a secondary infection coming from the bites of these ants could lead to many complications. These are only some examples that being in the same environment with these creatures, we are bound to encounter them in one way or another.
The point is to avoid or much better, to prevent these animals from even entering our homes and business premises. This is where good pest control comes as an effective ultimate solution.
