Pest Control of Tampa: Brown Recluse Spiders

No species of recluse spiders are native to Florida. However, three species have been intercepted. These species are as follows:

  • Brown Recluse: Typically has a dark violin-shaped mark, although the color may vary. Has been found in the Florida counties of Alachua, Bay, Duval, Jefferson and Leon.
  • Mediterranean Recluse: Very similar in appearance to the brown recluse, but the violin mark is generally lighter in color and has parallel sides. Has been found in the Florida counties of Dade, Escambia, Orange and Osceola.
  • Chilean Recluse: Largest and most dangerous of the recluse species. The violin mark of this species is dark and wider in front than behind. Has only recently been found in Polk County, Florida.

In addition, recluse spiders have occasionally established populations in single buildings at scattered locations throughout Florida.   You can get more information on recluse spiders as well as other spiders of concern in Florida by going to the Florida DPI site here.
