|Spider To Look Out For: Brown Recluse by Feisty102: 4:38am On Jan 06, 2010|
yes this is a very dangrous spider It is a tiny little brown spider. Don't fool your self like I did I thought it was a daddy long legger but no this has a thicker body and thicker legs. If you are not sure do some research. I don't now the areas they live in but I live in maryland and I found 2 in my house. They are very spacey( don't like other spiders)unless it is mating season then there can be up to around 5 in small room depended on there population in your area. These little creatures are very toxic there venom eats the skin to leave big holes were you are bitten. There bites will send you to the hospital if not treatedearly. My father waited 4 days to go to the docters and he had to stay in the hospital for allmost 4 weeks ( not fun) and it left a seeping smelly hole in his skin. That had to be cleaned every 2-3 hours. It hurts so bad it can make a grown man cry to not falling asleep for long period of time even days. Do not fool your self in thinking you do not need a docter these things are really dangrous. Here's my first encounter: my andy 6 years old brother were. playing around in the basement and he ran in to the bathroom and hid agenst the wall then I told him to move and i saw a very strange looking spider and i thought it was a daddy long legger but then I noticed it jump and then I rushed to get my brother.
After a while the spider just stopped and did not move for a while and then I grabed a cup and some spray and killed it and took pics if it and posted it online and lots of people tell me it was it was a brown recluse spider. Iam lucky it did not but me or my brother. Iam just telling every one this so you can be aware of the danger of these little devils.

The brown recluse, did u say Maryland ? Is that the state in U.S or I keja lagos. I hope im right, but we dnt seem to have them in Nija.
Very deadly creatures which hide in toilet bowls, pictures would be very helpful.

the most dangerous spiders in the world
the black widow - bite can kill
the brown recluse - bite causes gangrenous lesions
the sidney funnelweb - bite can kill
as an aside tarantulas are just big, but not dangerous to humans

the brown recluse and its cousin the black recluse are NORTH AMERICAN spiders. most people living in the US in regions where teh spider lives know the spider well.
deaths from it or the black widow (also from the US) are rare
a brown recluse and a daddy long legs look nothing alike
|Re: Spider To Look Out For: Brown Recluse by Feisty102: 10:12pm On Jan 06, 2010|
Well you would now right cause you are in my shoes I live in Maryland and I did see one and from were I was standing the legs looked well like a daddy long legger and I never said some one died so please don't come on here expect to ruin any thing so next time get your facts straight
|Re: Spider To Look Out For: Brown Recluse by agathamari(f): 9:56am On Jan 07, 2010|
Feisty102:im from the us. i have seen brown recluses my entire life as well as thier bites (in person not over the web). so dont assume your the only one who has ever seen one, try living in georgia or florida they are a regular house guest. and my comment on people dying from them was directed at oyb. pay attention.
pics are for your edification

i want to believe bites from the brown recluse can also kill if not properly treated. thank goodness we dont have those spiders hers. . . almost as if they know our health system is wack.
