This species likes to live undisturbed in quiet places like the cellar, the garage, sheds and other locations that are neither too humid nor too bright. In the open air, the brown recluse spider is to be found in rotten tree bark which they inhabit naturally without being disturbed. There is one thing that definitely sets the brown recluse spider apart from other fellow-spiders: the way it hunts. A clear example here is the distinct tangled web the black widow makes; yet, spiders also create webs for the protection of their nests. Placed above their home web, such silky defenses lower the vulnerability of spiders in front of aerial predators. There are other spiders which do not depend on webs for survival, and one famous example of such a species is the giant tarantula. The specificity of the hobo spider is related to the way it weaves its web: the funnel-shaped nest is the perfect structure to wait for prey in. The hobo spider is often found in homes or in their vicinity and though the general reputation of the species is that of high aggressiveness, these creatures are very unlikely to attack a human being. Some varieties have golden hairs on their carapace that makes them look dusty and allows for a perfect camouflage. Trapdoor spiders may also have parallel bars on the abdomen, but this is not always the case, since diversity is at home even within the range of the same species. Trapdoor spiders are not that easy to identify since there are other similar species for which they are often mistaken: the funnel-web spiders and the mouse spiders are the most relevant examples here. Unlike most of its brothers, the wolf spider prefers to remain on the ground where it hunts at night; there is no web and no sign that would let you know where you'll find a specimen since the wolf spider desperately tries to stay out of the humans' way. In some parts of the world it is mistaken for the brown recluse spider that is highly venomous, but for the knowledgeable eye the absence of the violin shape of the brown recluse species speaks for itself. Yet, we should nevertheless mention the fact that research on none of these treatments has been conclusive enough to be established as a general remedy for the brown recluse spider bites. In the majority of cases the wound is likely to heal without any medical intervention whatsoever, however, the exception appears in the cases when the venom spreads in a blood vessel.
