Brown Recluse Spider bites & Symptoms

What a Brown Recluse Spider Looks Like

Brown Recluse Spider

Brown recluse spiders are light to dark brown in color and have a distinctive violin-shaped marking on their cephalothorax. They have six eyes arranged in pairs and a relatively small body, measuring about ¼ to ½ inch in length. These spiders are known for their reclusive nature and tend to hide in undisturbed areas.

What a Brown Recluse Bite Looks Like and Symptoms When Bitten

A brown recluse spider bite may initially go unnoticed, as it is usually painless. However, within a few hours, symptoms may develop. The bite site typically becomes red and may form a blister. Over time, the blister may turn into an open ulcer, surrounded by a reddish ring. The bite can be accompanied by symptoms such as pain, itching, and a stinging sensation. In some cases, systemic symptoms such as fever, chills, nausea, muscle aches, and fatigue may occur.

Where They Are Found

Brown recluse spiders are primarily found in the central and southern regions of the United States. They prefer dark, quiet places such as basements, attics, closets, and storage areas. Outdoors, they can be found in woodpiles, sheds, and garages.
