    I have a friend who has gotten bit 5 times within the last 12 months. He has found a brown recluse in his house; so they are probably the culprit. What does he need to do to erradicate and control them. Thanks

    Has anybody seen those pictures of the guy who got bit on the thumb? After a week it looked like a burned hot dog that split open on the grill. Ewww!

    He is a struggling student and doesn't have the financial means to pay for it. I've got sprayers and the ability to get chemicals...i just need to know the best stuff to use.
