So I was excited to see another P. Audax scurry under our outside couch. I looked a couple seconds later I looked to see a house spider going for some prey which was the jumper. Somehow she got two of her legs stuck in his web, so I pushed away the house spider and it took a while but eventually the jumper went on to my hand. I wasn't rough with her just putting my hand in front of her and then gently pushing her abdomen. Once she was on my hand she started getting the cobweb and the debris that had stuck to her leg off. Then I went to go put her on a bush and as I lowered my hand to do so I feel a sharp prick on my thumb. I guess saving her from a house spider wasn't enough to earn her trust So I kinda freak out and shake my hand out of instinct and she falls to the ground ( it wasn't high, I was sitting on the ground) she seemed fine and started climbing the wall. I know their venom isn't that dangerous to people but I'm just wondering if there's any thing I should watch for. There's no swelling but I can see where she bit me. Nothing noticeable. Thanks!
