The brown recluse my be the scariest spider in North America. It is not the size that is scary, because it really is not that big. It is the bite that rots your flesh that makes it so scary.
John Gartner posted the following to Facebook. "So a Facebook friend of mine got bit by a brown recluse. Here is the progression: she went to the doctor within 45 minutes of being bit.14 days of antibiotics, 3 times a day. Everyday treatment for the first two weeks and once a week since then. Today is day #68!"
