After a rainy day yesterday my morning walk meant a change of shoes to my waterproof walking boots. I haven’t used them since spring so gave them a check for the Brown Recluse Spider.
This is the only spider in Portugal that can cause any serious problems and most bites are from disturbing them. As the name suggests, they hide away and choose dry and dark places. Occasional shoes are perfect!
