While doing your spring cleaning of your garage or basement, keep an eye out for this innocuous little fellow. His bite can be fatal! I like spiders and never kill them; I’ll catch them in a tissue and put them outside. I’m going to be wary of this one though.

    My friend had a run-in with this species and she said it ran toward her instead of away from her…freaky! I have arachnophobia anyway, so I try to stay away from them in general.

    Hi Nina, these fellas hang out in the desert too. Now that it’s warming up I’ll have to be in the look out. Cool drawing!

    Their bite is extremely nasty. Just ask one of my boys. He was on antibiotics after being bit. Thanks for the reminder!

    I’m with you about spiders Nina…I think it’s bad luck to kill them. But I do know about these, and am careful with spiders I find that I don’t recognize as non-biting. Nice drawing! (K)

    it is always a good idea not to both someone who desires to be a recluse… 😉

    Beautiful painting and lettering too! Very wise not to bother these beauties.

    I completely agree with you in regards to killing spiders – I try my best to not kill them, particularly in the house (I have a jar to catch them in and take them outside). We don’t have brown recluses, but we do have black and brown widow spiders and for safety I’ve had to kill a few of these in the house over the years. Still – amazing predators!
