The brown recluse spider, as its name indicates, has the ability of hiding at your homes in the darkest and smallest places it can find. This species of spider normally attacks its prey injecting venom along with their bite. The venom of this spider is powerful, it is used to kill other insects. In order to find this spider in its natural habitat, the first place to start looking is beneath rocks and inside tree holes. This arachnid, however, benefits itself from the human contact ; this type of animal relationship is called "synantrophic". Since the spider has nocturnal habits, the human artificial light attracts them because of the large number of insects that are normally gathered around the light bulbs, and so the brown recluse spider ends inside your home in search for them.
The brown recluse has no interest in humans whatsoever; its bite is always "unintentional", which means the arachnid will only bite when being threatened or accidentally touched.
Normally workers are black or red and black in color and range in size from 3/8 to 1/2 inch. Winged queen ants may be as large as one inch. However, size is not a reliable characteristic to identify carpenter ants. Carpenter ants differ from termites by having dark-colored bodies, narrow waists, elbowed (bent) antennae, and if present, hind wings shorter than front wings.
