Brown Recluse Spider Facts
Brown Recluse Spider Behavior
The natural habitat of the brown recluse spider is outdoors in undisturbed areas, such as under rocks or inside hollow trees. As the name of the spider suggests, it sometimes hides away in homes in search of insects to feed upon. Because the spiders are nocturnal, they are attracted to lights in homes that also attract their food source. Once inside a home, the brown recluse has little interest in humans and will only bite if it is threatened.
