>deaths since 1900s
Okay, best I fan figure is deaths stopped happening with introduction of antivenom in 1981. Still it isn't a "small gash" some of your spiders leave massive necrotized welts
>id rather get a bite equivalent to a small gash than be mauled whilst putting out the rubbish or getting shot
Aside from the fact that enjoy your spider season https://amp.abc.net.au/article/10666344
or the fact that it is still a life threatening emergency that requires probably insanely expensive antivenom and bankrupting hospitalization, if you want to talk about greater wildlife problems first of all, I have personally dealt with bears and problems weren't. Now, is it still unnerving to be alone in the woods with nothing but a big noif and see those glowing eyes way too far apart to be an enot? Certainly. But bear mailings are not even a problem. And getting shot is usually mostly not a problem so long as you don't do something stupid like join a gang, commit suicide, or have cops involved in anything.
Meanwhile I couldn't even take a swim without say a lethal octopus with no antivenom, deadly snakes, giant sharks, roos or any of a million other things that can maul and hurt me even including drop bears.
