I am glad you sent me that link, I think I'll let pategirl handle these if she doesn't already have one. If my leg swells to the size of a small watermellon when a bee stings me, I think this lil angel may be a lil to potent for my taste. And the reason I asked about the hairs is b/c i am a lil new to the spider thang still. Even the hairs of a Curly hair with turn my arm red with a lil swelling, and some white dots. So you see I need to be somewhat careful with the critters I buy.
In regards to your reaction to bee stings and its relation to poec venom, I'd defer to Code Monkey. He seems to be up on the science behind allergic reactions and such. Code... I know you're here somewhere.
Accually I know a lil about that type of stuff. From my understanding alot of insect and invert ventom are very simular (relizing there are different types of toxins) but if a person is allegic to some type of ventom or toxin, that person can easily be receptable to other ventoms or toxins.
