Brown Recluse Spider Bite

The following illustrates the progression of a brown recluse spider bite. The affected skin actually dies on his body! Some of the pictures towards the end are pretty nasty, but take a look at the last one - it is a picture of the spider itself.

The Brown Recluse Spider is the most dangerous spider that we have in the USA. A person can die from it's bite. We all should know what the spider looks like:

Send this around to people you love, because it is almost summertime.

People will be digging around, doing yard work, spring cleaning, and sometimes in their attics. Please be careful. Spider bites are dangerous and can have permanent and highly negative consequences.

They like the darkness and tend to live in storage sheds or attics or other areas that might not be frequented by people or light. If you have a need to be in your attic, go up there and turn on a light and leave it on for about 30 minutes before you go in to do your work!
