Brown Recluse Prevention Tips For Denton Residents

Serving Families Throughout North Texas

The brown recluse spider is not a species of spider that you want to accidentally come into contact with. This shy species of spider may not be looking for trouble, but they won’t hesitate to protect themselves if they feel that they are being threatened. Brown recluse spiders are fairly easy to recognize; they are light brown in color and they have a distinctive violin-shaped marking on the top of their body. Also, they only have six eyes instead of the typical eight eyes. However, the problem is that even though they can be easily identified, people usually come into contact with them before they have the chance to see them.

Being bitten by a brown recluse spider can require medical attention depending upon your reaction; their venom can cause a fever, swelling, and the skin around the bite to ulcerate. The wound from a brown recluse spider bite is slow to heal and is prone to infection. Besides their dangerous bites, brown recluse spiders are problematic because they easily find their way inside of Denton, Texas homes and are able to hide in the hard to reach areas of your home; they are also extremely resilient and difficult to control and eliminate.
