Brown Recluse Spider

This is really gross but I thought you might want to see this- only look at the last picture (image 6) to identify the spider as some of the other pictures are pretty sick as to what damage this thing can do.

Read below for the history- I'm not sure where the extent of this little Satan lives, but apparently it's arrived in Canada now,where it was previously only in the US.

Some of the pictures are pretty gory but please read It's summertime & cleanup is going on. Be careful where you put your hands. They like dark spaces & woodpiles. Also cool areas in the attic....

This guy was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider.Day 3

The following illustrates the progression of a brown recluse spider bite. The affected skin actually dies on his body.
Day 5
Some of the pictures towards the end are pretty nasty, but take a look at the last one -- it is a picture of the spider itself.
Day 6
The Brown Recluse Spider is the most dangerous spider that is in the USA and now known in Canada.
Day 9
A person can die from it's bite. We all should know what the spider looks like. Send this around to people you love, because it issummer time. People will be digging around, doing yard work, spring cleaning, and sometimes in their attics.

The Dangerous Brown Recluse Spider Please be careful. Spider bites are dangerous and can have permanent and highly negative consequences.

They like the darkness and tend to live in storage shedsand attics before you go up there and turn on a light and leave it on for about 30 minutes before you go in to do your work.

Thanks Murray P.

I left out two pics that shows how bad this spider's bite is but it would turn some stomachs.
It is definately a serious bite..
