COMMON ARIZONA PESTS
Brown Spider or Violin Spider
They are brown in color with violin
–shaped marking on neck of the violin points to the spider’s
abdomen. They have three pairs of eyes. This spider is closely
related to the highly venomous, brown recluse spider, which are
both predatory arachnids. Brown spiders live under rocks, pieces
of wood, and nests and burrows of other animals. As they prefer
dark places-basements and garages can become their home.
Constructs a sticky, sheet-like web for capturing small insects.
Highly venomous, but not aggressive. A bite results in the death
of tissue surrounding the initial wound. Bites most often occur
because the spider has hidden itself in bedding or clothing, and
is subsequently disturbed. There is no first aid just like the
black widow bite from this spider. Call a physician immediately.
