Black Widows and Brown Recluses
Black widows and brown recluses are poisonous and should be approached with caution in order to confirm their identity. Black widows are easily identified by their markings. They are black with a red hourglass shape on their abdomen.
A black widow bite can cause moderate to severe side effects including:
- Paralysis of the Diaphragm
- Muscle Aches
Black widows won’t bite you unless they feel threatened and attack in self-defense. They are also rarely found in homes but rather discovered in sheds, wood piles, and other dark, sheltered places. They eat other insects including beetles, grasshoppers, files and caterpillars. Their lifespan is 1-3 years and are typically 1.5 inches long and a quarter inch in diameter.
Brown recluses are easily identified by their brown bodies with a curved violin-shaped spot on it’s body. Their name suits them well because they prefer to hide in dark places; inside or outside the home. They can range from a quarter inch to half an inch long. While they are typically brown they can also be a yellow color or even greenish yellow.
Just like a black widow, a brown recluse won’t bite on purpose. Only when it feels threatened and feels the need to protect itself will it actually bite you. Should a brown recluse bite you the typical temporary side effects that may occur include:
- Burning sensation
- Fluid-filled blister
- Muscle pain
