In order to find this spider in its natural habitat, it should be first looked for beneath rocks and inside tree holes. This arachnid, however, benefits itself from human contact; this type of animal relationship is called "synantrophic". Since spiders have nocturnal habits, the human artificial light attracts them due to the large number of insects that normally gather around light bulbs, and so the brown recluse spider ends inside your home in search for them.
The brown recluse has no interest in humans whatsoever; its bite is always "unintentional", which means the arachnid will only bite when being threatened or accidentally touched. Use the menu on the left to learn more on this subject.
