brown recluse spiderWhat’s Bugging You? Brown Recluse Spider

Damage: This is one of the most poisonous spiders in North America. The brown recluse can leave a painful and potential scar or even lethal bite.

Habitat: They seek out dark, warm, dry environments such as attics, closets, porches, barns, basements, woodpiles, and old tires. Its small, haphazard web, found mostly in corners and crevices, is not used to capture prey. Most brown recluse spiders are found living in great numbers.

Feeding and Breeding: Like other spiders, the brown recluse feeds mainly on insects. Females produce one to five loosely spun egg sacs each containing about 50 eggs. Egg sacs are incorporated into the large, irregular, sticky webs. Eggs incubate from six to 39 days, hatching sooner if temperatures are warm.

Treatment: These spiders are usually hidden in dark places, so a proper inspection has to take place in order to locate them. They are easy to eliminate once located and the preventative maintenance treatments will kill these spiders.
