As a survivalist, I love to spend time outdoors and working on the farm. Part of being outdoors is the hazards of local wildlife and the many insects that are around my area.
A big problem is the many spiders that lurk in dead branches and pieces of wood laying around my property. In this post, I will show you a very easy and simple device that is designed to draw poison out of a spider bite.
Infact everyone should have the Bug Bite relief tool in their first aid kit.
How the Bug Bite relief tool works.
When you get stung by a spider, wasp, bee, or any other venomous creature the toxins will remain under your skin. Usually, your body will deal with it and over time neutralize the irritation.
The bug bite extractor tool works by a vacuum to draw out the venom to the surface. This provides instant relief and less pain for you.
It only takes 30 seconds and you will get instant relief. As you can see from the image above the Bug Bite thing tool has sucked out this insect bite poison to the top.
It is the perfect addition to your survival bug out bag checklist. It will never wear out or require servicing. Maybe just was it out from time to time.
When to go to hospital for a spider bite?
Depending on where you live and if the spiders are venomous you should treat all spider bites as an emergency. It’s also important to be aware that bites from spiders can cause a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) in some people.
If someone gets bitten, help them to stay calm and follow these steps:
- Apply a pressure immobilization bandage.
- Stay calm and ensure the person bitten stays still.
- Lay down or keep the bitten limb lower than the heart.
- Compression bandage the limb from the area of the bite up the arm or foot.
- Immobilize the bite area by splinting
- Keep the patient calm and still.
- Stay with the patient.
- Call emergency services and wait for the ambulance to arrive or attend the hospital quickly.
For young children and the elderly, they should always attend a hospital or local GP to get the spider bite looked at. Generally, the cold compress and a compression wrap will slow down the toxins.
If the wound gets infected or stays inflaimed you should attend hospital.
Always seek medical attention if you suspect you’ve been bitten by one of the following species:
- brown recluse
- black widow

Spiders are oftem more affraid of us than we are of them. Aslong as we dont go poking around in the nests and webs they will keep out of our way.
