The bite of a black widow spider is dangerous because it can affect a person’s nervous system. Another toxic spider is the brown recluse, whose venom is more potent than that of a rattlesnake, and is toxic to cells and tissues. The black widow spider gets its name from the erroneous belief that the female spider kills the male after mating. The southern black widow spider is one of the two commonly found species of black widow spiders found in the U.S. The northern black widow spider doesn't have the hallmark red hourglass shape on its belly, instead it can be identified by a row of red spots (spots may also be yellow or white) down the middle of the upper surface of its abdomen, and two crosswise bars on the undersurface. Spiders in the same family as the brown recluse spider include the desert recluse found in Texas, Arizona, and California, and the Arizona recluse. Brown recluse spiders are identified by their characteristic violin pattern on the back of the cephalothorax (the part of the body where the legs attach). A brown recluse spider bite may appear slightly red and when you look closely you may see fang marks. In severe cases, the reaction to a brown recluse spider bite can lead to death of the skin (necrosis) and subcutaneous fat. As the reaction to the brown recluse spider bite progresses, severe necrotic lesions with deep, wide borders can result.


Eleven days after the brown recluse spider bite a five-inch wide area of dead tissue was removed, and a skin graft was needed. Seek care immediately following a black widow spider bite at a hospital emergency department. If you think you have been bitten by a brown recluse spider see a doctor immediately or go to a hospital emergency department. Substances in the venom disrupt soft tissue, which leads to local breakdown of blood vessels, skin, and fat. Dried basil has also been suggested; crush between your fingers until a fine dust and apply to the bite.
However, because the bite releases much smaller quantities of poison into its victims, brown recluse bites cause less damage than rattlesnake bites.
Some people may notice minor stinging such as that felt with a bee sting when bitten by the spider.
Bites from these spiders may cause some localized skin disease, but no deaths have been reported from non-brown recluse spiders. The base of the violin appears to be at the head of the spider and the neck of the violin points to the rear. They prefer dark, warm, dry environments such as attics, closets, basements, barns, and wood piles. In the case pictured, two days after being bitten the redness and swelling continued past the elbow and down the forearm of the victim. In most cases, the bite site will become firm and will heal over the following days to weeks with minimal scarring. If possible, bring the spider to the doctor’s office so the physician can identify the spider to help make the proper diagnosis.

Symptoms of a brown recluse spider bite develop within eight hours after being bitten and include severe pain at the bite site, severe itching, nausea, vomiting, fever, and muscle pain.
Brown recluse spiders are small with one-inch legs, non-hairy, yellow-tan to dark brown in color, and darker legs.
Eight days after the bite, the swelling went down, the bite opened, and the infection was nearly gone. In some cases the local reaction will be more severe with redness, blistering, blue discoloration, tissue death, and scarring. The wound remained open the entire time for the spider’s toxins to drain, and the patient needed constant intravenous antibiotics and pain medications. Treatment for pain may require narcotic pain relievers and antivenin to counter the effects of the spider venom, which can usually only be found in a hospital setting. It is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment and should not be relied on to make decisions about your health. There are 13 other species of spider in the same family that may be falsely identified as a brown recluse. Most spiders have eight eyes, but the brown recluse has just six – it belongs to the genus Loxosceles. The spider searches for prey at night and rests in the day in its small web, which is usually constructed in corners or crevices.
The severity of the reaction to the bite depends on the age and overall health of the victim. Pictured: the bite area swelled to quarter-size within an hour, and within a day continued to swell, turning blue and dark red.
