Venomous spiders like the brown recluse spider can cause a lot of anxiety for people and in Tennessee and unfortunately coming across one of these spiders is not that uncommon.  Have you ever seen one of these spiders? A lot of people in Nashville area know exactly what they look like, because every time they see a spider they check immediately for the tell-tale violin shaped mark that is characteristic of these spiders.  Brown recluse spiders are typically between ¼ of an inch to ¾ of an inch long and are usually brown.  They have three pairs of eyes that are arranged in a unique semi-circle pattern, their legs are a solid color and smooth. Brown recluse spiders also make messy webs. Unfortunately for us, these spiders can be found throughout the state of Tennessee.  What can be done to avoid coming across a brown recluse spider? Here are some spider prevention tips from the professional exterminators at All-American. 

  • Don’t store firewood close to the home; piles of wood like this are perfect harborage areas for brown recluse spiders and other pests. 

  • Keep bushes and trees trimmed back away from your home and don’t let mulch or other organic materials touch the side of your foundation. 

  • Seal cracks and crevices where spiders and other insects may enter. 

  • Store your clothing in sealed plastic bins to avoid pulling on clothing that may have a spider inside it. 

  • Treat rental storage units for spiders and other insects before storing your furniture and other belongings inside. Have the rental storage unit treated again before removing items from storage. 

  • When you are looking to move to a new home, ask the home seller whether or not they have ever seen a brown recluse or contracted for a brown recluse spider service. 

  • Contract with a pest control exterminator and prevent all kinds of pests inside your home. With fewer insects to feed on, brown recluse spiders will find your home less suitable.
