Spider Venom Could Yield Eco-Friendly Insecticides

...years in captivity, a small group of these spiders yields plenty of toxins for King's chemical analysis. Funnel-web spider venom is a complex brew of more than 100 chemical compounds, most of which are toxic to insects, but not vertebrates. King is studying the molecular structures of the toxins that selec...
