The brown recluse, which has a distinctive violin-shaped marking on its back, is most commonly found beneath rocks or in woodpiles. Yet, the venomous spider can also hide in seldom-worn clothing or shoes, basements, attics, and crawl spaces. A brown recluse may attack if provoked, and its bite can cause blisters, fever, and difficulty sleeping—although the bite is typically not fatal. See a doctor immediately if you suspect you’ve been bitten.
