    i had never heard of this spider, i did a quick search on google and found one of the horible pictures ive ever seen. a man got biten of the face and half his face was off. what a horible spider, i would get exterminators down there quick smart. get your inverts out though.

    Watch out for those recluses, they are nothing to mess with. I'd take a bite from my T's or my scorps before getting near one of those things. Very toxic to humans.

    The Brown Recluse Spider is found in probably 80% of homes in their range. You can put fly tape on the floor and that will get many of them. Sprays won't kill them unless you spray it directly on the spider. Pandinus, it sounds like you have a nice infestation of them. Be careful !!!!!!!!!

    earlier this thread I posted a bunch of links to bite photos too.. It's scary. :)

    Their bites look like tropical ulcers of the prisoners of the japanese in wwII.

    Did anyone happen to know that the scorpion, Hemiscorpion lepturus, also produces such necrotic ulcerations?. BTW, that's just nasty.
