I am not a subscriber to your newsletter (or listserv, whichever) but I need
some information, and I need documentation for it.  I have heard that the bite
of daddy longlegs (official term "Opiliones"; narrower term "Triaenonychidae")
is poisonous, but that the size/development of it's mouth prevents it from
biting humans.  Is this correct?  I can find NO information on the bite of a
daddy longlegs.  
Thanks ever so much for whatever help you can give me.
