danieldlg_13 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.

danieldlg_13 It looks like this: Backyard gardener spider (Hobo spider)

PORKY-JK Yea. That's what I was telling my mom m dad. I want a profesinial to look at it. Maybe I can take it to a pest control place

Cons_Table 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 are gonna be dealing with a knarly wound.

jcf 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

PORKY-JK No violin marking has brown markings and if u look really close looks like black spots

PTaylor 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.

bro the spider with the hour glass is defiantly a black widow

homebrwd 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.
05-24-2011 06:25 AM
kpdiver Yep I agree...Brown Recluse. Fog the entire area.
Is it about the size of a quarter legs included?

popstop785 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. :/

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


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