Brown Recluse


  Brown Recluse
Description: Brown recluse spider bites are rare and only 90% of the are medically significant. They are no larger than a half of an inch. They make webs.


Identify: The brown recluse has three pairs of eyes, uniformly colored legs and a violin-shaped marking on the cephalothorax. 

Dave Robson's Recommendations:

 As they can be serious problems, it should be destroyed. Sticky traps can be spread in the area to catch any others. Make sure people check drawers, coats, etc. carefully to avoid being bit. If bit, visit the doctor or hospital.
  They usually don't move in packs...so it's not like there will be thousands.
