If the infestation is minor, there are several ways to eliminate the spiders. Glue traps can be used in areas that the brown recluse might hide, such as under beds or behind furniture. It is also advisable to remove clutter around your house in order to limit the areas that the spiders can hide. If at any time you feel that the problem is becoming a larger issue, contact a local exterminator to take care of the infestation. Additionally, if you are seeing a spider or more a day, you should bypass self-prevention efforts and seek professional assistance immediately.
