Brown Recluse Spider
The brown recluse can be identified by its brown body and black fiddle on its body. Their webs often do not look similar to the webs of other spiders. It is often disorganized and does not make a nice pattern. The brown recluse is often discovered in garages, basements, sheds, and closets.
Their initial bite is usually painless. The bite site may become red and swollen. Most people who have been bitten by this type of spider usually heal in about 3 weeks.
Like other bugs, they are not excessively aggressive. A person could actually live in a structure that is infested with brown recluse spiders and never get bitten. Most bites happen because of body pressure; when an insect is accidentally caught against exposed skin. It can also happen while moving things or putting on a garment that they are hiding in. They have little teeth and their bite can’t pierce through clothes.
