The brown recluse spider, Loxosceles recluse Gertsch, can inflict a very dangerous bite. The initial pain associated with the bite is not intense and is generally less troublesome than a bee sting. Within 8 to 12 hours the pain becomes quite intense, and over a period of a few days a large ulcerous sore forms. This sore heals very slowly and often leaves a large, ugly, and disfiguring scar.
