Correct identification is an important first step in pest control.
Recluse spiders in Utah are only found in Washington, Utah. They are 1/4 to a 1/2 of an inch long. They are tan to dark brown in color with a darker fiddle-shaped marking behind the eyes. They also have six eyes arranged in three groups of tow.
Recluse spiders spin irregularly shaped webs in undisturbed areas. They can be found outdoors in native vegetation, pack rat dens, etc. They are seldom found indoors.
Recluse spider bites can result in a necrotic ulcer that can take several weeks to heal. Call a physician or go to an emergency room immediately after being bitten or when symptoms develop. Bring the spider if possible for identification.
