» The official BROWN RECLUSE SPIDER - HABITAT
The brown recluse spider lives inside houses as well as in its surroundings. Inside homes, the arachnid lives in dark places, such as cracks, corners, seldom used clothes, curtains and inside furniture. Yet, it is very common for a spider to get trapped in showers and bathtubs because of their smooth surface, and there have been lots of cases in which spiders bit the legs of a person who was having a bath.
Follow the links in the context menu for specific information.
Outdoors, the BRS is usually located underneath rocks or within hollow woods (See also spider location).
Warning: If you live in areas where the BRS lives, you must be careful when manipulating garden objects such as boxes, piles of wood, pots, etc. Use of gloves is always recommended. There are lots of ways of controlling spider plagues.
