Brown Recluse Spider

Asked October 4, 2018, 12:28 PM EDT

We have found what we believe is a Recluse spider in our home in Marshall, Michigan. I have attached a photo. I have compared this photo to others on the Internet, and it appears to match. Thank you, Roger Graves

This spider, although sharing some characters with a recluse, is something different (and far safer). It is a "funnel weaver", family Agelenidae. They are very common spiders, and based on the number of inquiries I've received about them, there are a lot of them this year.
