The venom of the brown recluse spider can be highly toxic, eating away at skin and causing painful lesions. If you suspect that your home has a brown recluse infestation, you should call Bug Authority immediately at 615-472-1292 for an evaluation. Our pest control evaluation is complimentary, so there’s no point in taking a chance. 

How Can You Tell If You Have an Infestation?

You usually just have to see one to know, but that can be difficult to do. After all, as indicated by their name, they are a reclusive spider. They sleep during the day and come out at night to look for their prey (live or dead insects). Spider webs are not an indication of a brown recluse invasion because they don’t use them to catch their prey. They are hunters. An adult spider is light brown with a darker, violin-shaped marking on its back immediately behind its eyes.

Where Do You Look for Them?

Outdoors, we look for infestations in yard debris and woodpiles. They may number in the hundreds or even thousands in a single area. Indoors, the spiders favor cardboard because it mimics rotting tree bark. They like undisturbed areas, such as inside boxes, in seldom-used clothing and shoes, under furniture, and even in the crevices of baseboards and window moldings. The most common hiding places are in closets, attics, crawl spaces, basements, and any place that is warm, dry, and dark. 

How Do You Get Rid of Them?

Because the brown recluse is so good at hiding, it generally takes a pest control professional like Bug Authority to get rid of them. It is a challenging job, but at Bug Authority, we use a strategic method to provide the best results. We reduce the female spider population to help break the life cycle. It is such a challenging job that many local companies might tell you there is no effective treatment for these spiders, but our satisfied customers will tell you that there is.
