Brown Recluse Spiders in Houston
To help get rid of Brown Recluse spiders and stay ahead of them, here's what you need to know:
In the mature brown recluse spider as well as some other species of recluse spiders, the dark violin marking is well defined, with the neck of the violin pointing toward the bulbous abdomen.
The abdomen is uniformly colored, although the coloration can range from light tan to dark brown, and is covered with numerous fine hairs that provide a velvety appearance.
The long, thin, brown legs also are covered with fine hairs, but not spines.
Adult brown recluse spiders have a leg span about the size of a quarter. Their body is about 3/8 inches long and about 3/16 inches wide.
Males are slightly smaller in body length than females, but males have proportionally longer legs. Both sexes are venomous.
The physical reaction to a brown recluse spider bite depends on the amount of venom injected and an individual's sensitivity to it. Some people are unaffected by a bite, whereas others experience immediate or delayed effects as the venom kills the tissues (necrosis) at the site of the bite.
Many brown recluse bites cause just a little red mark that heals without event. The vast majority of brown recluse bites heal without severe scarring.
Brown Recluse spider control can be challenging and require thorough treatments using a variety of professional products and techniques.
