Brown Recluse Spiders In DC, MD & VA

Brown recluse spiders are one of the two dangerous spider species that call the United States home. Learning about these pests is essential to keeping them off your property and away from your family.

What are brown recluse spiders?

Brown recluse spiders are naturally shy, reclusive spiders. They are an unassuming brown color with a darker violin-like marking behind the head. Unlike most other spiders, the brown recluse has six eyes instead of eight. These spiders also have long thin legs covered in tiny hairs.

There are many spiders that resemble brown recluse spiders. At a glance, these spiders can appear very similar to other types of spiders. If you are unsure if the spiders in your home are brown recluse spiders, it is always best to reach out to a DC, MD & VA expert for accurate identification.

Are brown recluse spiders dangerous?

One of the most venomous spiders that people in the U.S. may encounter, you should never underestimate the brown recluse. Though dangerous, these spiders aren’t aggressive toward people and do their best to stay away from us. Bites are typically accidental and occur as they are trying to stop themselves from being squished. 

Brown recluse spiders have venom potent enough to cause serious health problems. Symptoms of a brown recluse spider bite include fever, chills, nausea, dangerous secondary infections, and ulcerative skin around the bite site.

Luckily most of the spiders you will come into contact with are harmless. However, if you ever suspect you were bitten by a brown recluse spider, immediately reach out to a medical professional.

Why do I have a brown recluse spider problem?

Spiders are predators, meaning they feed on other living things, like insects and other spiders. If your property has an abundance of insects, spiders will take interest and make themselves at home. While brown recluse spiders prefer to live outside, don’t put it past them to follow their insect prey indoors or use your home as a safe place to play their eggs. 

Where will I find brown recluse spiders?

Brown recluse spiders build irregularly shaped webs at ground level, preferring to place them in dry, dark, quiet areas. In our yards, gardens, leaf piles, woodpiles, yard clutter, and sheds and garages are places that provide shelter for brown recluse spiders.

If these spiders ever find their way into your home while following their insect prey, they will hide in basements, crawl spaces, and under pieces of furniture or large appliances.
