Brown recluse spiders

The brown recluse spider is a native to Arkansas and ranges in size from ¼ to ¾ of an inch in length. They are light to dark brown in color with a well-known brown violin marking. This distinct characteristic has also resulted in other monikers including fiddlebacks and violin spiders. The brown recluse has a round body (with eight legs of course) and has three pairs of eyes that form a semi-circle.

Why do I have brown recluse spiders?

Brown recluse spiders seek out dark, undisturbed areas. Inside the home, ideal places include storage areas, closets and basements as well as attics and cupboards. If they are hanging around outside your home you will most likely spot them in woodpiles, sheds, and mounds of debris.

Are brown recluse spiders dangerous?

They can be! The venom from a brown recluse spider bite can produce a dangerous reaction. You may experience pain and itching caused by the bite. Ulcerating and necrosis of the tissue affected by the spider bite could also occur; this tissue could take months to heal. You may notice the symptoms from a bite right away or anywhere between 2 and 8 hours after the incident has taken place. Common symptoms from a brown recluse bite include redness and blistering around the site of the bite. If you suspect you have been bit by a recluse you should see a health care provider right away. If possible bring the spider along for proper identification. The good news is that these arachnids - for the most part- only bite if they feel threatened. If they have been hiding in your shoes, or clothes it is almost certain they will bite when these items are next in use.
