Sounds like banana spiders, punkin. Poisonous. Aggressive.

IF the spider makes a web (an extremely TOUGH web) it is harmless and non-poisonous. IF the spider walks around (no web) it is potentially deadly. Two different kinds. I've been walking in the Floriduh jungle, and walked into their nests. Feels like I was going through tough string! And the spider (they can get up to about 2" long) was the non-poisonous, docile kind.

Just kill the fargin things to be on the safe side.
