OHC8: Spider Sodas

Location: Convenience Stores and Vending Machines

Status: Active.

Description and Behavior: ‘Spider Sodas’ are seemingly normal cans or bottles of soft drink beverages of any brand, with the only distinguishing feature being that the ingredient list is written in an unknown language. When the supposed ‘soda’ contained within contacts human saliva it reacts by transforming the entire container of fluid into the most venomous local spider species. This occurs at a rate of one millilitre being equivalent to one spider regardless of size. Even if part of the liquid is poured in a separate glass the entirety of the soda will transform when the reaction occurs. Due to the nature of this anomalous reaction it is quite common for victims to receive spider bites on the inside of their mouths.

Recommended Actions: It is our recommendation to check all labels of soft drink beverages and dispose of any with suspicious ingredient lists. If you or someone in your proximity activates the reaction, remove the spiders from the mouth and vacate the area. Then be sure to get treated with antivenom. It may be necessary to bring in an exterminator to deal with the sudden infestation.
