There’s good reason that there is so much attention brought to the Brown Recluse spider. This spider is very poisonous, very dangerous, and even deadly. When they do bite, which only happens when they are accidentally pressed up against your skin, it can be very painful. Bites can cause the tissue to even die; a symptom referred to as necrosis. Simply put, you don’t want Brown Recluse spiders in your home.
Well, I have some good news and some bad news.
