Brown Recluse Spiders

Note that the title is plural.

That’s what we’ve killed here, in our house within the past two weeks.

And, I’m not talking about small Brown Recluse Spiders.  I’m talking about big ones – quarter size or larger.  Big enough that the two fangs and their six eyes are large enough to see without my reading glasses.


One was killed on the wall here in our home office.  The other was killed in the pan drawer beneath my stove.

Mom killed one in her bathroom sink the same day WKRN announced a surge in Brown Recluse Spider bites.

It’s important to know that Brown Recluse Spider bites can cause death and because the poison is necrotizing, it can cause some pretty deep and awful wounds that may need surgery.

Take a minute and read what the National Institute of Health (NIH) has to say about Brown Recluse Spider bites.
