Looks like a brown recluse to me. Got to watch for those. They can cause a nasty wound at the bite.

Exclamation Warning Graphic Picture

Looks like one. And this is the damage it can do:

Wow, I am counting my blessings for not being bitten. I always heard they like to be in dark spaces. He was hidden pretty good under the cover. I am just glad I seen it prior to installing the plug. By the way, heading to Lakewood campground in Myrtle beach next Friday. Ready to spend some quality time camping.

No. Thank God. Looks very painful and probably takes a very long time to heal.

BTW Lakewood is our favorite campground. Been going their for the past 11 years.

Last week I went thru the entire TT with Ortho Home Defense. I was starting to have issues with ants and little spiders. I did all the edges around floor, inside cabinets, every access, around slider on inside, and anywhere where there were cut outs for water lines. No more BUGS!

Thank God is correct. It is very painful and takes forever to heal and can lead to amputation.

My friend uses a insect bomb in his cabin cruiser boat every year before he goes out. Supposedly safe to use in Rv's also.

Actually, I have seen ICU admissions and multi-system organ failure from those nasty brown recluse spiders. Usually, these extreme cases are a result of not knowing you were bitten by one and ignoring the bite but yes they can be deadly.

Correct...not uncommon to not know what or that you were bit until you start to see the reaction and wonder what bit me? In which case needs to be watched and if becomes severely inflamed and starts to cause a cavitation needs prompt medical attention!

Unfortunately, I had a personal experience with one several years ago. It actually got under my blouse and bit me just above the waistline. At first, I had no idea what had caused this "blister" place but as it became worse in the next couple of days, I went to the doctor. It took a long time to heal and left a quarter side depression. I now double check everything. Just a little paranoia.

DANG you people!!!!

Now I feel crawly things all over me and itching everywhere


I got in the habit of lifting campground pedestal covers with the plug so I can bail when the expected wasps come after me !

Good idea. Never know what could be lurking there, especially in the South!
