Satisfied Customers
We have has Bulwark exterminating services for about 3 years and have been very satisfied. We love how they do not need to enter the home or spray inside but we never see any bugs!!! Today, Jeremy came out to talk to us about terminate treatment and prevention and did a free termite inspection. He was extremely informative and patient in answering all of my questions. He provided suggestions of things we could do that will help and explained in detail the treatment options that Bulwark provides. I never felt he was 'selling' me but rather just providing options and expert advice. We really appreciate his attitude and the information that he gave us.‎

How Brown Recluse Spiders infest From The Basement

How Spiders Infest from the Basement
(865) 909-7168

The Knoxville Brown Recluse

Knoxville, TN is home to one of the U.S.’ most vibrant and dynamic universities; The University of Tennessee Volunteers. In contrast, Knoxville is also home to one of the U.S.’ most deplorable and terrifying pests; the dangerous Knoxville Brown Recluse spider.

Brown Recluses in Knoxville, TN are tan in color and are about the size of a quarter. They hide in your discarded clothing, underneath your bed, and in your basements, attics and garages as they hunt for roaches and crickets to eat. Although they are shy in nature, they do bite when bothered, even unintentionally. These bites are dangerous and can even be deadly!

The Dangers Of Brown Recluse Bites

Most spiders in Knoxville are harmless, unless you’re talking about the Brown Recluse. This spider does bite and these bites are extremely venomous. The venom is toxic, and will kill the living tissue around the bite causing skin necrosis. The site of a Brown Recluse bit will first turn red, but will progress to a bluish-white color. The painful bite will continue to fester as it becomes infected, and if left untreated may cause serious damage to an appendage. After a Brown recluse bite, a victim may be in pain for days or even weeks.

If you are bitten by Brown Recluse spiders in Knoxville, seek immediate Knoxville medical attention.
