About the pics..

If you see pictures that belong to you - don't get pissy and complain to google. Just tell me, and I'll either remove them immediately or give you credit and a link - whichever you prefer.

This guy was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider.

The following illustrates the progression of a brown recluse spider bite. The affected skin actually dies on his body! Some of the pictures towards the end are pretty nasty, but take a look at the last one - it is a picture of the spider itself.

The Brown Recluse Spider is the most dangerous spider that we have in the USA. A person can die from it's bite. We all should know what the spider looks like:

Send this around to people you love, because it is almost summertime.

People will be digging around, doing yard work, spring cleaning, and sometimes in their attics. Please be careful. Spider bites are dangerous and can have permanent and highly negative consequences.

They like the darkness and tend to live in storage sheds or attics or other areas that might not be frequented by people or light. If you have a need to be in your attic, go up there and turn on a light and leave it on for about 30 minutes before you go in to do your work!


Great post. Well written with informative images. Everyone should see this. Keep up the good work.

former nurse in me doesn't want to belittle the seriousness of this spider bite, but I did want to point out that not ALL BR bites go this bad. they're a pain in the rump to treat as the wound has to heal from the inside out so the wound has to be kept open and not allowed to scab over.
Either way.. ICK! damn that's gotta hurt!

well then even though i dont live in america, im gonna be careful now >_> that and not sure y he would sit around and have those piks taken =|

I found these pictures sitting in the My Documents folder in my computer. I have no idea how they got there or where they came from. It must have been a too much tequila not enough rational thinking kind of night. If one or more of them belongs to you and you don't want them here - I'll be happy to remove them.
