The Dangerous Brown Recluse Spider With spring just around the corner, it's time to review this message If you don't look at but one picture, be sure you take a look at the last one so that you will know what the spider looks like! It's springtime & cleanup is going on. Be careful where you put your hands. They like dark spaces & woodpiles. Also areas in the attic........................ If you have a need to be in your attic, go up there and turn on a light and leave it on for about 30 minutes before you go in to do your work! They like the darkness and tend to live in storage sheds or attics or other areas that might not be frequented by people or light. This guy was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider.
