A Guide to Brown Recluse Spider | Facts, Bites & Control

This winter, homeowners may find themselves withdrawing indoors when the cooler weather arrives. They might not realize they have some covert intruders--spiders! The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) advises you to be especially cautious of brown recluse spiders; one variety is among America's most dangerous species, capable of biting without warning and causing serious pain or even death if left untreated for a prolonged amount of time.

Although the majority of spiders are harmless, householders should be aware that some, such as the brown recluse spider, can cause painful and severe bites. This arachnid has a deadly bite that, if not treated, can lead to hospitalization or even death! The NPMA provides useful recommendations on how to recognize these toxic critters before removing them from your home: "Spider hunting," "where they hide" and then swiftly remove them."

The brown recluse spider is quite uncommon among arachnids. They can be found in dark spaces like attics and storage sheds they thrive on both food sources such as insects or prey such as mammals that have entered those areas without knowing what waited inside for them; however, this aggressive species does not always live in close encounters with humans due to its ability to hide out until a factor brushes towards clothing before violently biting down causing intense pain rather than introducing venom like other spiders would do if proven.

The brown recluse spider lives behind rocks and in dark locations, yet its bites can be dangerous. It only takes approximately 10 minutes for someone who has been bitten by this insect to develop a strong reaction, so if your arm starts hurting immediately away after walking past some wild mold on its surface or touching something sticky without washing first, know that it's not simply ordinary. Serve briefly before moving on to another activity! The severity rating issued varies greatly depending on how much exposure each person was given. Some people exhibit no symptoms at all, while others may have severe allergic reactions that necessitate prompt medical attention. In either situation, the skin lesions will appear red/brown.

Spider Protection:
Do you know how you shake out your shoes and clothes before dressing? Okay, do it again. This time, make sure all of the towels (or linen) are dry, and then inspect each piece of bedding for spots or stains--you never want to catch anything on its way into an important place like yours. For individuals who live with cats, this is particularly critical because they are continuously washing themselves along these lines from whatever comes into their path, which may appear to be nice petting practice at first glance but can rapidly turn toxic if matters go wrong.
