The Dangerous Brown Recluse Spider

Spider bites are dangerous and can have permanent and highly negative consequences. They like the darkness and tend to live in storage sheds or attics or other areas that might not be frequented by people or light. People will be digging around, doing yard work, spring cleaning, and sometimes in their attics. If you have a need to be in your attic, go up there and turn on a light and leave it on for about 30 minutes before you go in to do your work.
