Are daddy long legs poisonous?

    These spiders are most likely not poisonous. They are not known to bite people, and due to ethical concerns, the effects of their venom have not been studied in any detail on mammals. Thus, there is no scientific basis to show  that they are in fact poisonous.

    I would like to add that Daddy Long Legs is a name applied to a multitude of animals, none of which are poisonous. I have heard the myth of their venom applied to each animal.

    You needn’t fear Crane Flies, Harvestmen or the Cellar-spider.
