question for spider lovers

Just trapped a spider that I thought was a daddy long legs. But this one has thicker head and abdomen with.black dots on it. I would take a picture but think I'll let it die first

It looks like it could possibly be a brown recluse, if thats the case kill it.. its very poisonous.

Edit:

After doing more research, i am 99.99% certain its a brown recluse.. and should die a horrible death lol

If that is a brown recluse... I am going to agree, KILL THAT MOTHER !@#$er!!!!
Then get some pest control to spray wherever you found it ASAP! YOu do NOT want more of those sum bishes around. :/

Does the marking on the back resemble an hour glass? If so, it's a brown recluse. Definantly spray where it was found. you no want these as pets!

Yep I agree...Brown Recluse. Fog the entire area.
Is it about the size of a quarter legs included?

No violin shape on its head pointing towards the abdomen, also its adbomen isnt uniformilly colored, not a brown recluse. Also they are venomous, not poisonous.

It almost looks like a BR, but their are a couple of spiders that resemble it. where did you find it? Inside your house or outside? Night or day? was it fast or slow? web?


BR are mostly nocturnal. they like to hide during the day. Only problem with that is they like to hide in clothes, shoes, towels....stuff we use everyday.

They do not build webs, they are hunters and hunt at night.

A BR has a violin looking symbol on it, kinda hard to make out but if you study some pictures, you might get an idea.

Kill it. If you found it inside, get some glue traps and put them out. some poisons don't work on these. Keeping it jarred up waiting to die won't work. I've literally caught a spider in a mason jar, sealed it up and left it in a metal building in the middle of summer where the average temperature reached 120 to 130 F for over a month, and the spider was still alive!


They are common in my area, but are rarely seen.

Well I think the Brown Widows change there appearence over time with age. The one the OP posted could be a young one or an older one.
Creepy PORKY, I hate spiders

Its hard to say it looks kind of like a brown recluse, but doesnt at the same time. I would definitely consider getting sprayed whether it is or not...cuz if it is, and someone gets bit...you are gonna be dealing with a knarly wound.

On second thought... it isn't. The hind legs on the Hobo spider are longer than the front. Looks like it may be a Brown Recluse. The front legs will be longer than the hind legs.
