Where They Like to Hide

Brown recluse spiders like to hide in many different areas. You can find them underneath beds, under kitchen and bathroom sinks, inside closets, underneath furniture, underneath kitchen and dining room tables, and behind televisions. You will also find brown recluse spiders outside your garage or inside your garage. If your garage is attached to your home, they could then easily make their way inside.

Look in all these areas to see if you see this spider. Because you have seen one, you may have more than one inside your home.  

Tips to Remove the Spider From Your Home

You can try to remove the brown recluse spider on your own. Purchase an insecticide that is made to kill spiders. You can purchase this at home improvement stores or online. Follow the instructions on the insecticide product to mix it properly. Once it's mixed, pour the insecticide into a hand sprayer. Spray the areas listed above. You can spray the insecticide onto glue boards and place them in these areas. The glue boards will trap the spider.  Also spray around door frames, baseboards, and window frames.

Insecticides that you purchase are slow release, meaning they will not instantly kill the spider. The insecticide will leave a residue behind to make the product last longer in the areas where you spray it. There are aerosol sprays that you can purchase that are made to kill spiders instantly. Keep a can or two on hand because you can spray it directly on the spider to kill it if you see one.
