- Yeah I got a couple bumps about a week ago and now theyre necrotic wounds with dead tissue gettig to the size of a five cent coin. Quite sure it was a white tip, or white tail, here in West Australia, summer, clothes on the floor, never checked the bedding, lots of other webs around this huge house with other dead spiders and bugs, not being from this country didnt know that White tails are really even here,or that i had set up the perfect environment for them to flourish, and this is a rural home. but Oh well, I hear they heal eventually hopefully, but could also get some persistent red soreness. Quite a nasty bite indeed so far. So yeah, guess I had to learn the hard way.
