Tips On How To Tell That A Spider Is NOT A Brown Recluse Part 2 Of 2

Continuing from Wednesday…

• The brown recluse spider can vary in color slightly depending on what it has eaten, but the body color will always be uniform in color regardless. The pigment of the spider will never be two different colors at the same time.

• Unlike some other types of spiders, you will only find fine hairs, not spines on the brown recluse spider.

• Brown recluse spiders do not construct their webs out in the open. They prefer to make their webs in small areas that are out of the way, behind objects where they can hide.

• The body of the brown recluse spider is small in comparison to other types of spiders.  Its actual body length is only 3/8 of an inch.  Not counting the length of the legs, they are about the size of a dime.

For many people who are afraid of spiders or who do not want to get close to a potentially venomously creature like the brown recluse, it is best to call a licensed NJ pest control expert.  Heritage Pest Control can keep your home or business safe from all types of spiders or other insects by providing pest control treatments to the perimeter of your structure.
