Adult brown recluse spiders are light to dark brown, with a body length of 1/3 to 1/2 inch and a leg span about the size of a quarter. Indoors, they are found in secluded places like old boxes, behind baseboards, and underneath tables and chairs. Grayish, irregular, sticky webs and round white egg sacs 3/4 inch wide may be found in infested areas.
Remove loose wood, trash, or clutter from areas where spiders might hide. Wear gloves and protective clothing when cleaning.
