Subject: Brown Recluse Spider- a Must read!!

Be careful in the yard... ..

It's summertime & cleanup is going on. Be careful where you put your hands. They like dark spaces & woodpiles.

Also cool areas in the attic

This guy was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider.

Day 3

The following illustrates the progression
of a brown recluse spider bite.
The affected skin actually dies on his body.

Day 5

Some of the pictures towards the end are pretty nasty, but take a look at the last one -- it is a picture of the spider itself.

Day 6

The Brown Recluse Spider is the most
dangerous spider that we have here in the USA.

Day 9

A person can die from it's bite. We all should know what the spider looks like

Day 10

Send this around to people you love, because it is almost summertime.

People will be digging around, doing yard work, spring cleaning, and sometimes in their attics.

The Dangerous Brown Recluse Spider

Please be careful.
Spider bites are dangerous and can have permanent and highly negative consequences.

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.

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.



ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!”

me -There's a season?


I will make sure my wife sees this thread. 

Also check  your boots if they have been stored.  They love to hide in them if they have been setting in the dark for a while.

This is a brown recluse-

Not this-

These two are commonly confused in my area. The brown recluse does not get very big, usually smaller than a quarter, although sometimes larger. The Wolf spider in pic two gets much bigger.

Here is a link to Brown recluse distribution. We all know they are a little more wide spread but thay are rare in Carolina.



I knew a buch of guys that got bit while on Bragg. My brother got bit by one too.... nasty
