What you see in this video is a natural brown recluse spider trap. To make this trap, use 1 small size cup and one "Spitting Spider". Place the spitting spider inside the cup and put a lid which will allow air in for the spitting spider. Keep the spider in long enough to let it build a small 4 to 8 strand web and establish it as her home. When night time approaches, place the cup where brown recluses will crawl next to a wall, and remove the lid and make sure you don't aggitate the spitting spider in any way, other wise she will leave the cup and find a new spot to set up. When a brown recluse detects her, he will slowly move towards her, and she will detect him also by the strands of her web. She will approach him and spit venomous silk and cause the brown recluse to get stuck to the cups surface. This video will show you that the recluse is stuck. He can't get away no matter how hard he tries. She eventually bites him several times to put him out.

www.permies.com This is a jumping spider that found its way onto my monitor. I was once bit by a brown recluse spider. I had a big welt on my arm for six months. In those days I killed all spider and had to kill lots of flies and other bugs too. Now, I leave all jumping spiders and daddy long legs. They are safe to me, eat all the flies and bugs which makes me have nearly zero brown recluse food. So, a greatly reduced probability of brown recluse spiders. music by Jimmy Pardo

Spider was probably around 1" to 1 1/2" (Toe to Toe) ( I could be exaggerating) RAWR! Meh... I Had to do it... I hope there isn't any Brown Recluse Karma out there... :-\ INFO ABOUT BROWN RECLUSE SPIDERS: www epestsupply com/spiders php The brown recluse spider, (loxosceles reclusa), can also inflict a very dangerous bite. The initial pain associated with the bite is not intense, and is generally less troublesome than a bee sting. Within 8 to 12 hours the pain becomes quite intense, and over a period of a few days a large ulcerous sore forms. This sore heals very slowly and often leaves a large, ugly disfiguring scar. The brown recluse is soft-bodied and secretive species found in homes and other outbuildings. The adult body varies from 1/3- to 1/2inch in length, with the arrangement of the legs producing a larger overall size of 1 inch diameter or greater. The body is yellow to dark brown, and has a rather distinctive darker brown violin shaped mark on the top of the cephalothorax. Recluse Spiders are often colored tan, but can be dark brown to almost white in appearance. The Brown Recluse Spider has been widely reported in the southern, western, and mid western United States, and is a particularly serious pest in Oklahoma, Missouri, and surrounding states. It is usually found indoors, particularly in bathrooms, bedrooms, closets, garages, basements, and cellars. In homes with forced hot-air heating and air conditioning and often above-ceiling ductwork, brown recluse ...

This brown recluse charged at my camcorder. Only thing is, he wasn't attacking it, he was trying to hide in the lense casing. The brown recluse doesn't like to be in light, so he charged for what appeared to be a good dark place to hide. They are not agressive spiders, they only bite if they're badly spooked or squeezed. If one was to crawl on to your arm, it would be best not to freak out and panic. Although I do understand it's hard not to.
*Youtube has its own compression and my original video quality was exceptional. I apologize for those who cannot see the images clearly enough to use them. Below you will find extra links to information and images. ___________________________________________ The Brown Recluse specimen appearing in my video is the Loxosceles reclusa. The best-known species, the brown recluse spider, Loxosceles reclusa, inhabits many Southern and Midwestern states. Recluse spiders are frequently found in garages, firewood piles, cluttered cellars and stored board piles. They often live around human dwellings, in bathrooms, bedrooms and closets, under furniture, behind baseboards and door facings, or in corners and crevices. Recluse spiders are most active at night when they hunt. People are sometimes bitten while asleep, apparently when rolling over on a spider while in bed. Others are bitten when putting on clothes that have hung undisturbed for a long time and where spiders are hiding. The brown recluse is a small-bodied, medium-sized spider whose outstretched legs span little more than the diameter of a quarter. It is almost uniformly brown and without banded legs or other prominent markings -- except for the dark violin-shaped mark on its cephalothorax, just behind its eyes. Unlike most spiders, the brown recluse has six eyes arranged in three pairs, instead of the usual eight. Brown recluse are hunting spiders that wander at night in search of prey. Females make retreats in which they ...

Here I am feeding one of my Brown Recluse(caught in my house) a large Orb Weaver. The Recluse is a large adult and has not eaten for quite awhile. You can get an idea how recently they have eaten by the size of their abdomen. This one had a small and shriveled abdomen before eating. After eating, it will increase in size by more than 4 times. The notable thing about this video is the ritual they perform after injecting their venom into their prey and prior to eating it. After biting the Orb Weaver it begins to navigate around all sides of its prey and spins silk and attaches it to the surroundings and ties the prey down so it cannot crawl off. This allows the Recluse to relax and wait for the prey to die before it starts eating without risking the prey escaping. There are sources that insist that the Brown Recluse only spin silk to protect an egg sac, this video along with others I had made proves that they spin silk webbing for multiple uses! I have never heard this about Brown Recluse before and was amazed to see it for myself! Their silk is extremely fine and almost invisible. It is barely noticeable when the light hits it just right and you catch a glimps of reflection off of it.
Popping the blister from a brown recluse spider bite
I thought this guy might have been a brown recluse, and based on the first few pictures I looked at, I believed it. However, there were still some slight differences. After reading a bit more into it, I found that the abdomen of Brown Recluse spiders are one uniform light brown color. This little guy has some other things going on there. Also, the legs are supposed to be one uniform color with no other pigments. This spider has some intermittent dark pigments on his legs. So, all in all, probably not a brown recluse spider. Maybe a close cousin though. : P
