Found spiders in chilis, what can I do?

I love cooking with chilis, and my family back mulatto, puya, ancho, morita, arbol and pasilla chilis back from Mexico for me. Unfortunately, many of them now have spiders in them. Could they hurt me if I wash them thoroughly and kill the spiders? Beyond the gross factor, I don't know about health and I want to make sure none escape to breed and turn into an invasive species.
