Brown Recluse Spider
These secretive spiders are small and have a distinctive violin shaped marking on their cephalothoraxes (the head and midsection). This marking has earned them the nicknames of fiddleback or violin spiders. Brown recluses are one of the few spiders that can harm a person, although fatalities are rare. If you know you are going to be working in an area that may contain brown recluses, wear gloves and minimize areas where they like to live (such as piles of laundry and clutter).
