It can be somewhat difficult to identity a brown recluse infestation because they are nocturnal and try to avoid humans. If you have seen and identified a brown recluse around once a week, it is a good idea to take action against an infestation. Inside homes, brown recluse spiders are usually found in dark places, such as in seldom used clothes, cracks, corners, and inside furniture. Outside, most are found in piles of wood, under rocks and in hollow trees. You should take special care when gardening because it is possible to disturb a habitat of a brown recluse.
With Halloween just around the corner, its time for larger-than-life creepy, crawly creatures skittering across lawns, lurking in dark alleyways and dropping out of nowhere to frighten their hapless victims.
North Carolina is home to dozens of species of spiders. While most species of spiders are relatively harmless, two poisonous species are common in the Tar Heel state, the black widow and the brown recluse spider.
