Brown Recluse Spiders in North Carolina

 

Brown recluse spiders are a nuisance inside and outside homes across the United States.

These elusive spiders are expert avoiders, active only at night and prefer to keep their distance from humans. With a painful bite and the reclusive nature that gives them their name, it is vital to identify this pest and differentiate it from other spiders.

Identifying Brown Recluse Spiders

Brown recluse spiders, measuring a mere half-inch, range in color from yellowish to darker browns. The brown recluse is well known for its potentially dangerous bite, often leading other non-harmful spiders, like wolf spiders, to be misidentified as brown recluses. Wolf spiders are larger and not as shy as their reclusive cousins, so you are more likely to see them out in the open. If you want to be sure a spider is a brown recluse, look for the characteristic violin-shaped mark on its back.

Signs of a Brown Recluse Infestation

Spotting signs of a brown recluse spider infestation requires a keen eye. These spiders have no desire to socialize, preferring to venture out at night to hunt mosquitoes, moths, and ground insects. Look for their tight webs in gaps and hollowed-out logs, often appearing disorganized and hastily made. Inside your home, check your basement, attic, and other rarely disturbed areas for any spiders hiding in dark, secluded areas.

Brown Recluse Prevention and Treatment

Preventing and treating a brown recluse spider infestation involves proactive measures. While there are DIY methods you can implement, we highly advise against attempting to get rid of brown recluses yourself. Many people can experience a severe allergic reaction to their bites, and even if you do not, you may be putting yourself at risk of receiving painful sores that can last for days.

Clegg’s Pest Control recommends cleanliness as the best preventive measure. Clearing wood piles, minimizing clutter, sealing entryways, and wearing gloves in potential nesting areas are essential practices. If you suspect a brown recluse infestation, contacting a pest control professional immediately is crucial.
