Identification

  • Brown recluse spiders are quarter-sized with a fiddle-shaped marking on the cephalothorax

  • Six eyes that are arranged in 3 pairs, which is distinctive because most spiders have eight eyes arranged in two rows

  • Only 13 counties in GA have confirmed infestations

Threats

  • Brown recluse spiders inhabit dark areas, under furniture, in wall voids, in closets
