Spider: As an arachnophobic I feel your concern, but rationally most spiders are harmless. In fact, most spiders don't "bite" at all. They spin websacs to lay their eggs in, usually in a dark corner somewhere. Your head is not going to be a good spot for that, so relax. :)

The spider cannot harm you in any way.
