Spiders aren’t technically bugs, but it’s important to know some of the common bites you can get from them.

The brown recluse spider is found in many southern states, including Missouri, Tennessee, and Louisiana.

They usually hide in the dark and don’t want to be bothered with, but if they get trapped against your skin, they’ll bite.

It will take you a few hours to actually feel the itch, but once you do, it hurts a lot.

The bite will cause redness or purple ring that looks like a bull’s-eye.

It’s likely that you have to get treatment for this bite if it starts to blister and give you a fever, headache, or chills.
