Murfreesboro Brown Recluse Spider Control
Identifying the Brown Recluse
Unfortunately, brown recluse infestations are not always easy to identify. As its name suggests, the brown recluse spider is a reclusive species. It typically hides in dark crevices during the day and ventures out at night, often climbing into shoes, piles of clothing, bedding and other available hiding spots. Also, because its fangs are very small, many victims are unaware that they have been bitten until they begin exhibiting symptoms.
Since these spiders are so reclusive, I find that spotting a spider or two each week is often indicative of an infestation. You can identify a brown recluse by its long, thin legs which make an adult spider appear to be the size of a quarter. Brown recluses also have tan or brown bodies with a violin-shaped marking on its otherwise uniformly-colored back.
How to Protect Your Home
If you have seen a brown recluse in your home, it is important to know that these pests can be very difficult to eradicate using store-bought pesticides. The brown recluse’s long legs keep its body from touching the ground, thus preventing contact with pesticide-covered surfaces.
