Brown Recluse Spiders

What are Brown Recluse Spiders?

Brown recluse spiders, on the other hand, are a species that avoids being seen. If you happen to come across one of these spiders, you will notice that they are light brown.

Depending on your lighting, you may notice a darker violin-like marking on its back. On older spiders, this identifying mark is particularly obvious. Brown recluse spiders have six eyes arranged in three sets of two instead of eight eyes like most other spiders.

Brown Recluse Spiders Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are brown recluse spiders dangerous?

Brown recluse spiders are timid and prefer to flee from a fight rather than engage, however, if they are compelled to bite, they will do so in order to protect themselves. One of the most frequent ways to get brown recluse spider bites is while organizing storage areas or reaching into a storage container.

Spiders that fall into this category are considered dangerous, not because they pose a threat but because their venom is potent enough to cause health issues in humans.

Wounds caused by a brown recluse spider bite take longer to heal and are more prone to infection. If a brown recluse spider bites you, it's critical to visit a doctor as soon as possible to manage the symptoms.

Why do I have a brown recluse spider problem?

Brown recluse spiders construct unevenly shaped webs on the ground, favoring locations that are dry, dark, and peaceful. They will thrive in an environment where they have a suitable location to build their webs and a sufficient quantity of bug prey.

Brown recluse spiders prefer to live in dark, humid places such as leaf piles, woodpiles, clutter in sheds, decks, gardens, and shrubberies. Unfortunately, their favorite hiding places are often found in common objects that may be found in most yards.

Where will I find brown recluse spiders?
