ID to last week’s bug

–by Frannie Miller


Brown Recluse – This spider is a brown recluse, but is exhibiting a color shift (usually they have a darker colored abdomen). This can be caused by the diet the spider ate or due to where it is living (notice the lighter colored background). If you are interested in learning more about their life cycle, biology, and feeding habits a good resource can be found at: https://bookstore.ksre.ksu.edu/pubs/MF3133.pdf
