I've heard diatomaceous earth works better than neem oil if you're looking for something organic to spray in the garden or in the home. They live in big colonies with special individuals performing specific jobs. While the coral snake can and does bite and deliver venom, it is much harder to do so than a rattlesnake with large fangs that can penetrate boots. Always try to catch the spider for identification.
