Why Do I have Brown Recluse Spiders?

brown recluse

Ever true to their name, they prefer to be reclusive, and to hide in non-descript, out-of-the-way areas of households such as sheds, garages, attics, crawl spaces, etc. While the Brown Recluse spider prefers to dwell outdoors under woodpiles or other debris, some Brown Recluse Spiders have been found to be adapting to human environments and thriving indoors in homes and buildings; coming out to hunt at night.

Brown Recluse Spiders look similar to Wolf Spiders, and very often mistaken to be a Wolf Spider and vice-versa. While Wolf Spiders prefer to live outside, they sometimes find their way in, whereas Brown Recluse spiders feel right at home living and hunting in the household.

Brown Recluse range in color from light tan to dark brown, with no distinguishing stripes or bands. Their long thin legs have a smooth, almost silky appearance. Sometimes referred to as the violin or fiddleback, the Brown Recluse has a distinguishing violin-shaped marking on its dorsum.

Locating Brown Recluse Spiders in Southwest Florida

spider webs

Detecting the possible presence of Brown Recluse Spiders in Southwest Florida is relatively straight forward. The first way is to physically see one either hiding in your attic, cabinets, garage, shed etc. or to find their home. While the Brown Recluse spider does weave a web, they do not use this for hunting. When they look for food, they will actually venture out and actually go hunting. Their webs merely serve as the Recluse’s “retreat” rather than to trap animals, so they will not have the typical web like pattern and will be more like an irregular cluster of silk threads.
