recluse bites can be fatal. i still have a scar on my butt from a bite back in the 70's. pain was off the scale. went to the ER to have it lanced. the doc told me some horror stories about this little bastard.
This was about 20 yrs ago and the scar other than a slight indentation is almost unnoticeable except in the summer months because unlike the rest of my leg it doesn't tan.
Spiders don't bother me but rats send a shiver down my spine. When I was about 12 yrs old I was in a granary on top the pile shoveling grain down to the auger to load a truck. a saw a rat walking along the top but thought nothing of it. After all rats around grain is common. next thing I know that rat is up inside my pant leg. I must have broken some type of speed record getting out of that granary , getting my boots and pants off to get that rat. I wasn't about to let it become a jewel thief If'n you now what I mean. my older brother got a good laugh from the episode,me not so much.
