Brown Recluse: Little Bite ... BIG Damage!

We've added a page to our safety area with information about the Brown Recluse Spider. The page includes some graphic photos of the skin damage caused by bites from these spiders, so some caution should be used in showing them to younger Scouts.

We've included a prominent disclaimer, and a large white area above the photos, so the text can be seen without viewing the photos.

The page can be viewed from our safety index page, or directly at
