Do you know about brown recluse spiders? These are reclusive spiders that are common in the Nashville, TN area. Even in heavily infested homes the chance of being bitten is actually quite rare, but just one bite from a brown recluse spider can be incredibly painful and lead to further health complications that you just don’t want to risk. Although there are many different kinds of spiders in Tennessee, the brown recluse is one of the most concerning because of the toxic bite they deliver which can cause necrosis of the skin, a serious medical problem. Brown recluse spiders are also called violin or fiddleback spiders because of the dark violin-shaped mark on their back and head. They tend to live in hot, dry and reclusive areas, like under rocks or wood piles outdoors or inside wall voids and cardboard boxes. The brown recluse extermination experts at All-American would like to offer you a few tips to help you avoid spiders (especially the brown recluse!) as well as other poisonous spiders in TN.


  • Reduce populations of all insects inside and outside your home. Regular outdoor pest service, installing yellow outdoor lights and turning off lights outside are three easy fixes to reduce indoor and outdoor insect populations.

  • Replace or mend window or door screens with rips or tears; these can allow insects as well as the spiders that feed on them entry into your home.

  • Seal up any possible gaps or cracks in the foundation or around the exterior of your home to eliminate pest entry areas.

  • Shake out your clothing before you put it on; brown recluse spiders like to find dark places to hide and if that is in your dresser or your closet, you could have a spider inside your clothes.

  • Inspect your shoes before putting them on your feet; again, brown recluse spiders may find your shoes as a good hiding place.

  • Inspect bedding before getting into bed at night; this is another great hiding place for brown recluse spiders.

  • Clean up webs and spider egg sacs whenever you find them.

  • Reduce areas of clutter around your home; when there are fewer hiding places for insects and spiders, you will have fewer problems with these pests.
