Brown Recluse Spiders:

The Brown recluse spider coexisting with humans can be dangerous.  They are very common in Oklahoma and can be found in large numbers in your Broken Arrow and or Tulsa area home.  They do cause serious problems if you are bitten and require immediate medical attention.

This spider lives in dark corners and places inside houses and also under furniture, boxes and books.
It has a rather shy and non-aggressive behavior, although occasionally the Brown Recluse Spider bites humans because they share the same habitat.     
Bites only occur when the spider is disturbed, accidentally touched, and when putting on seldom used clothing and shoes where the Brown Recluse Spider has decided to live. 
Its web is made of a loose and irregular yet very sticky thread. It is only built as a daytime retreat and as an egg holder.
Brown Recluse Spiders can survive six months without food or water, hidden in their lairs during daytime and roaming at night.
This arachnid prefers undisturbed places, so the Brown Recluse Spider usually bites humans when it is caught between a part of the body and another surface, for example, when children are playing under house furniture such as beds and tables or in the garage. Bites also happen while a person who is sleeping suddenly rolls in a bed where the Brown Recluse Spider has climbed, or when dressing with clothes or shoes where the spider has hidden itself.
Like all arachnids, this type is also formed by a cephalothoraxes connecting the 4 pairs of legs and the abdomen. The Brown Recluse is usually found to be no larger than a penny. 



Adult brown recluse spiders often live about one to two years. Each female produces several egg sacs over a period of two to three months, from May to July, with approximately 50 eggs in each sac. The eggs hatch in about one month. The spiderlings take about one year to grow to adulthood. The brown recluse spider is resilient and can tolerate up to 6 months of extreme drought and scarcity or absence of food, most notably observed on one occasion to survive in controlled captivity for over five seasons without food.

    Bites from the brown spider, the recluse, can be painful in those cases where the bite is not dry – and an envenomation takes place. It can be difficult to identify a brown recluse spider from many other brown spiders if you don't know the special characteristics of brown recluse spiders. See more here:
