Brown Recluse Spider Bite


I thought these pictures were worth passing along.  I’m forever putting my hands under water troughs, trash can lips, hay, etc.  I should do what CG does and always wear gloves when working outside..but they get so hot.  I see black widow spiders all the time, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a brown recluse.  They are kind of ordinary looking, and are not as easy to recognize.  I wonder if they’d harm the chickens if the chickens ate them whole without chewing like they normally do their foods.  Would the spider give up and just say “to heck with it, I’m dying anyway”, and just slide down peacefully?  Or would he get in one last big bite as he was going down the gullet?

That’s the question for the day.

This guy was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider.

Day 3

The following illustrates the
progression
of a brown recluse spider bite.

The affected skin actually dies on his body.

Day 5

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.

Day 6

The Brown Recluse Spider is the most
dangerous spider that we have here in the
USA.

Day 9

A person can die from it’s bite.  We all should know what the spider looks like


Day 10


The Dangerous Brown Recluse Spider

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.
