Brown recluse spider in Missouri.

Brown Recluse Spiders are very common in our area and can cause damaging bite reactions. Initially, you may not feel the bite, but the poisonous venom these spiders release can cause serious damage. If you’ve been bitten, you may suffer from these symptoms.

  • A Fever
  • Chills
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

The bite may also result in a necrotizing ulcer, which kills the skin.

Learn how to recognize these house mates by their light brown color, violin on the back, and long legs like a ballerina. They normally live in places like:

  • Wood Piles
  • Dark Shoes
  • Garages,
  • Basements
  • Other Dry & Undisturbed Places

One way to avoid being bitten is by making sure to shake out your shoes, gloves, and boxes before digging around.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Dr Katherine M. Moritz is the bomb-diggity!!! She’s very professional, kind, and most of all caring for my concerns and needs. Today, I walked out of her office with my son in my arms in tears of joy. She removed a cyst on my eyelid that had been there for over a year now. In a matter of seconds, she painlessly had it removed. When I looked in the bathroom mirror, I ran back into her office thanking the staff and giving her my gratitude and thanks. I swear, I cried when I got into my car all over again. This place is a whole vibe, they are culturally competent, and she’s helping me live my wishes in my 40’s, that I had in high school. Dr. Moritz is like the fountain of youth, she’s reversing my aging and I feel more confident in myself than I did in my 20’s.
