The Brown Recluse Spider is one of the most feared spiders in all of North America; and with good reason. The spider is dangerous. Bites from the Brown Recluse spider can be quite painful, with the venom killing the living tissue near the bite site. Although rare, bites from this venomous spider can cause death. Because of these severe reactions to the spider’s venom, there is much awareness out there about this particular spider… Some of which is false. In fact, the Brown Recluse spider is often misidentified, with many homeowners believing that any brown spider is indeed a Brown Recluse.
So how do you know if a spider you find in your house is indeed a Brown Recluse? Where in the country are they prominently found? And a question I hope nobody ever has to answer, what do you do if I’m bit by a Brown Recluse spider?
Thankfully, the spider control experts at Bulwark Exterminating have put together this informative infographic entitled: A Guide To The Brown Recluse:

Many of us cower in fear at the thought of a spider. If there is even an inkling that the spider might be dangerous, we run screaming the other direction looking for the nearest broom to take the spider out. There are many feelings out there about spiders; some are misconceptions. This got me thinking… Why are people so afraid of spiders? Here are 10 reasons:
1. Their Fangs!
Spiders have two major weapons at their disposal, their fangs. If a spider so chooses it can literally sink its teeth into you. Many people keep spiders as pets. Tarantulas, who can have fangs as long as 2.5 inches, are a common household pet. The tarantula’s bite isn’t any more poisonous than that of a bee sting, but still is very painful. When a tarantula is getting ready to bite, it lifts its four front legs. Those fangs in combination with that threatening stance are definitely intimidating and grab at a person’s sense of fear.
2. A Spider’s Poison Can Kill
Many people fear spiders because of their poison. In reality there are very few spiders with venom lethal enough to kill humans. The two most poisonous spiders to humans are the Brown Recluse and the Black Widow. Even the poison of these two spiders would have a hard time killing an adult. Mainly young children and elderly people are susceptible to more serious consequences from these bites; otherwise, bites from these dangerous spiders can easily be medically treated.
Yes, spiders are gross to even look at. All species of spiders look different, but we can definitely agree that they are all ugly. Some have thick legs, while some have thinner legs. They can be hairy or bald. Their buggy little faces give most of us the heebie-jeebies! So how can you get close enough to kill something if you can’t even stand to look at it?! Just, time haunting questions of the universe, I guess.
4. Sneaky Spiders
Spiders can move swiftly and quickly to avoid the sandal’s smash. From there, they hide in places people can’t reach or even see. The trick is to spot it and out sneak it. However, spotting a spider when you’re asleep is difficult. This can give us nightmares, and an unrelaxing night’s sleep. This paranoia is a huge factor to a person’s sense of fear. The fear is that this tiny creature is smarter and sneakier, and this can really perturb some people.
5. They Can Attack!
Most people see spiders as predators, and while a spider is a hunter, it definitely does not spend its off-time sniffing out humans. While there are some jumping spiders in existence, they’re definitely not harmful to people. These jumping spiders live mainly in tropical environments.
Most spiders among people are not aggressive at all. The two most harmful spiders, the Brown Recluse and the Black Widow, are non-aggressive and in reality are very shy. They cannot jump and will definitely not hunt out people.
6. Shape & Color
Spiders also have angular shaped legs that we as humans are wired to fear. Their legs and also their dark color are a spider’s natural defenses. Their unpredictability and visible difference causes human fear.
7. Too Large or Too Small
Spiders are so different and vary dramatically. This unpredictability raises the fear in all of us. Some spiders can be extremely large. The Goliath Bird-eating Spider is the largest spider in the world. Its leg span is about 12 inches, which is about the size of a dinner plate. Along with the massiveness of this giant, spiders can also be extremely small. Spiderlings can be really small, even microscopic, yet they look exactly like a full grown spider, leaving the human mind to wonder just what a spider’s size can really be.
8. Babies, Babies, & More Babies
Spiders seem to produce spiderlings endlessly. Many spiders can produce hundreds of eggs at a time. The creation of these new spiders can be as quick as a few weeks. After those baby spiders hatch, the mother spider is back at it again, creating more weapons of mass destruction.
9. Weapon Two: Webs
We’ve all had those nightmares, getting stuck in a giant web and getting our flesh sucked away by a nasty spider. While it is true that many spiders can produce silk webs, only about half of the species of spiders in the world can produce silk. All other spiders use different tactics to catch their prey. Regardless of the tactic, no spider technique is threatening enough to people. While a web may be nasty and scary, it is definitely not strong or sophisticated enough to ensnare us… well, maybe just ensnare our fear.
10. Again, They Bite!
All things spider are scary, but in the end, their bite is definitely the scariest thing about them. While not many of these bites are lethal, they are painful. Some of the world’s largest spiders can pack unfortunate punches. Most household spider bites will cause an itch at most, but you can’t help compare those little critters to their powerful cousins found all over the world.

So out of all those little spiders get inside your home the ones that kind of run along jump along the grass they have organisms like these pincher bugs and other insects down-deep right along the foundation where the grass meets the foundation what happens though is that these running hunting spiders will set up camp inside what we call the we poll that the gap between the bricks that allows moist air to escape your wall that moist air draws insects and they’ll set up camp and nest back there and unfortunately when they lay their eggs their eggs are inside your wall two to six hundred babies will then hatch inside the wall and you’ll start seeing little tiny spiders running around the corners of your phone you also see little cobwebs set up in the corners. This is where it comes from.

Summer is finally upon us. Among all the summer vacations, family reunions, picnics, and days at the pool; something dangerous lurks. Desert cities like Las Vegas, NV, St. George, UT, Phoenix, AZ, and Mesa, AZ house a few unique and even dangerous pests. Here are three desert pests to watch out for this summer:
Commonly confused with the Brown Recluse spider, the Desert Recluse spider is equally as dangerous. Desert recluses are found in Southern Nevada, Southwest Utah, and Western Arizona. Not too many Desert Recluses invade the actual cities of Mesa or Phoenix; however, both cities do harbor the Arizona Brown Spider which is also in the recluse family. These recluse spiders hide in dark places.
Desert Recluse spiders are tan in color, and have a dark brown violin shaped spot on their head. These spiders are not aggressive in nature, but do bite when bothered. Many homeowners in desert cities are bitten when they accidently touch the venomous spiders. When bitten, a victim will experience pain, swelling, and redness around the site. The site will begin to blister, causing open lesions and sores. Bites can take months to heal and even require skin grafts. Those with compromised immune systems, and the young and elderly, are at the most risk to a Desert Recluse bite. Death can be a result on rare occasions.
Arizona Bark Scorpions
Throughout all of the southwest, Arizona Bark scorpions wreak havoc on unsuspecting homeowners. If you live in a desert city, you’ve seen one of these scorpions before. While most other species of scorpion live solitarily, these scorpions congregate in groups. When you see one of these scorpions in your Arizona, Nevada, or Utah home; there are bound to be more. Feeding on crickets and roaches near your desert home, these nocturnal pests ambush their prey.
Typically, Arizona Bark scorpions come into your home looking for water and refuge from the elements. It is then when unfortunate encounters occur. Hiding inside your shoe, or underneath a discarded article of clothing or towel; these pests sting you when you accidently encounter them. Their stings cause an unpleasant reaction that can include nausea, numbness, vomiting, breathing difficulties or convulsions.
Because of the several embellished myths about their size, speed, behavior, appetite, and lethality; many people who encounter a sun spider are deathly afraid of them. Sun spiders, also known as camel spiders or wind scorpions, are neither spiders nor scorpions and have no venom. They do however, exhibit very aggressive behavior and may attack for no reason at all. They can run up to 10 mph and have large, powerful jaws that can produce an irregularly large bite. Antibiotic treatment is necessary if a bite becomes infected.

Garages are notorious places forcobwebs and spiders. This area has been treated
But there are quite a few egg sacs let me see if I can pull a few out for ya. Typical house spider egg sac has anywhere from four hundred to eight hundred baby eggs in it because these little white markings eventually within a year those egg sacs will hatch and even though the garages been sprayed it’ll reinfest. If this was in your wall or up around the siding on the exterior of your house around your windows sill those baby eggs would be all over inside your home.
Anytime you live next to a open field, a golf course or a lake you get a lot of little spiders ballooning over to your house they spin a little web in the wind when their babies and the wind picks up that web and carries it to the high tree or to your house where they’ll attach to your house and start to thrive. Eventually they grow up in a way and this is what we have here we have five egg sacs each containing about two hundred ends so while the problem did not originate here they got here and now they’re laying eggs directly on your wall, problem is that these egg sacs, hatch they’re gonna find a way in this window from small cracks or crevices and pressure inside your home.
New Report: Microscopic Scorpions Crawl On You While You Sleep
Phoenix, AZ—A study conducted by The University of Phoenix has found, that during an average night’s sleep, some 300 microscopic scorpions unknowingly crawl across your face, neck, and body as you slumber.
These microscopic scorpions, which look a lot like lint when bunched together, are confined to the State of Arizona; but researchers fear outbreaks in Texas, and isolated parts of Nevada and Southern Utah are inevitable.
It’s important to note that these microscopic scorpions cannot sting humans, unlike their cousin the Bark Scorpion. Their stingers are simply too small.
The University of Phoenix’s lead entomologist, a Klaus Meine, issued the following statement regarding the microscopic scorpions:
“As you sleep, you become a virtual playground for these creeping pests just mere minutes after you fall asleep; inhaling dozens of the scorpions and swallowing at least 20 during an eight-hour period.”
It gets worse. Meine added,
“While these microscopic scorpions are drawn to the moist and humid areas of the nose and mouth, they will also spend each night birthing hundreds of their young in and around your armpits.”
There is one surefire way to tell if you have a microscopic scorpion infestation, Meine continued.
“Like all other scorpions, these microscopic scorpions give live birth. Victims who suffer from a microscopic scorpion infestation will awaken with scorpion afterbirth in their bed sheets. It’s about this time a victim should know they are not alone in bed.”
At this time homeowners in Arizona, Texas, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah should be on high alert. There is no known cure for the microscopic scorpions, as this is a new report.
*** Update: The Horrifying Truth About Microscopic Scorpions
The truth is, microscopic scorpions are not real, and according to this report, we do not swallow scorpions, spiders, or any other insect while we sleep.
The next time you see a spider in your shower, be prepared. Have a surefire plan of attack. The following methods are your best weapons to combat an unsightly spider found hiding inside your home.
If you want an effective way to kill a spider, a firearm will get the job done. A .44 caliber Ruger should do the trick.
9. Call Chuck Norris
The truth is, you don’t need a firearm to kill a spider… Chuck Norris is an equally efficient killing machine!
8. Play Carly Rae Jepsen’s, “Call Me Maybe”
If you see a dangerous spider in your home, take the following preventative steps:
Step 1: Put in earplugs.
Step 2: Turn on the radio and find Carly Rae Jepsen’s, “Call Me Maybe.” With as much airplay as that song gets, it should be easy to find playing on some station.
Step 3: Point the speakers in the spider’s direction and watch as it instantly falls to it’s death.
Note: Playing anything by Justin Bieber is also equally effective.
When you see a spider running across your ceiling, grab the nearest can of hairspray. Enough of the sticky spray will freeze that spider in it’s tracks. Even if it doesn’t kill it; the spider will still have great hair.
6. Eat The Spider
A delicious way to kill a spider, assuming the spider is not dangerous, is to eat it. Marinade the spider with some garlic, thyme, olive oil and cayenne pepper; then toss it with some garden fresh arugula. Enjoy!
Many cultures regularly eat spiders, scorpions, and other insects.
5. Smash Spider In An Oreo Cookie
When that unsightly spider is running across your kitchen counter-top, grab your nearby bag of Oreo cookies. Take an Oreo apart, and quickly smash the spider in the Oreo’s cream. On top of killing the spider, you’ll also gain internet fame when you post a photo online claiming that you found the spider inside.

4. Good Old Fashion Boot

You see a spider running across your bedroom floor and you freeze. Don’t panic– Now’s the time to react quickly. A thick-soled, steel toed boot is your best ally at this point. Slip it on, and stomp. Keep stomping! Twenty or thirty times should be efficient.
If you want to try a different strategy with the boot, and have good aim, throw the boot at the spider and run!
3. Make The Spider Sit Through A Phoenix Suns Game
WARNING: Watch a Phoenix Suns game at your own risk… Viewer discretion is advised.
If you want the spider to suffer a slow and painful death, subject the spider to a 2013 Phoenix Suns basketball game. One half of inept basketball should be enough to put the spider out of it’s misery.
If you want an effective way to kill a spider, a flamethrower is one of your best bets. Even though you may risk burning your house to the ground, you know that spider is not coming out of it alive.

This Halloween, as you’re carving your jack-o-lanterns and handing out trick-or-treat candy to all of those ghouls, ghosts, goblins and princesses knocking on your door, be on the look out for a spider… It just might be one of your dead relatives dropping by to wish you well.
According to superstition, if you see a spider on Halloween it’s the spirit of a deceased loved one watching over you.
My question is, “How do you distinguish between a spider that is possessed, and one that isn’t?”
Here Are 10 Indicators That a Spider is Possessed by a Deceased Relative:
1. If you catch a spider making a turkey sandwich, it’s likely your Uncle Mort. Non-possessed spiders will stick to eating crickets, beetles, and other insects.
2. If the spider is trying to put a VHS cassette in your Blu-Ray player, it just might be your deceased mother trying to get you to watch The Sound of Music for the 50th time.
3. If you get a politically charged email forwarded to you by a spider this Halloween, that makes absolutely no sense, it’s just your deceased Aunt Sherry. Everybody knows real spiders are non-partisan. It’s the many blood suckers that are poly-tick-al.
4. If there is a message written in the spider’s web, it’s a dead relative seeking poetic justice… Or Charlotte, who’s also dead.
5. If you see a spider crawling on the ceiling, and it’s head starts spinning around like something straight out of The Exorcist movie, it’s definitely possessed. While spiders do crawl on ceilings, their heads will not spin around.
6. If you walk into your living room, and a spider is playing Neil Diamond’s Forever In Blue Jeans on repeat, it’s just your father who recently passed away. A real spider would be listening to Spiderwebs by No Doubt.
7. If a spider remarks, “When I was your age I had to walk to school, uphill both ways, IN THE SNOW,” it must be Grandpa. A real spider would either die off or hibernate during the snowy winter months.
8. If you walk by a spider this Halloween, and it says BOO, it’s likely cousin Sal. A real spider is scary enough and wouldn’t need to say BOO!
9. If you go to squash a mustached spider this Halloween, and it begins talking back to you, it’s Uncle Bobby! See for yourself in this video:
10. If you are a Bulwark Exterminating customer, and you see a spider in your home, you better believe it’s the spirit of a loved one watching over you… No real spider could ever get through our barrier.
