    Background: Researchers in Sydney, Australia have embarked on a programme to educate the public on the difference between dangerous and harmless spiders.

    Australia has several dangerous spiders, some of which are capable of inflicting a lethal bite. Despite the development of new serums designed to counter the affects of a deadly bite, 11 people have died from bites from Funnel-Web Sides alone in the past 2 years.

    To prevent further deaths from spider bites. researches have put together what they claim is the first "ready reckoner" on spiders -- an identification kit that will help householders to recognise the deadly species.
