A Prepper Can Get Bit by a Brown Recluse and if He Does Here’s How to How to Effectively Treat It.

brown recluse

The Brown Recluse Spider has an unwanted reputation for being nasty, poisonous and potentially deadly!

Unfortunately, for the spider, that reputation is a bit unfair!

Brown Recluses are generally pretty shy, which is why you usually only find them in closets, under beds, wood piles or dark corners of basements.

In fact, in most cases, you have to brush up against a Brown Recluse for it to even bite you.

Nonetheless, while most Brown Recluse spider bites are painless or feel like the itch after a bee sting and do not cause lasting pain or damage, some can be very dangerous if left untreated.

This is particularly true if you are off grid or in a survival situation!

To learn how to treat a bite from a Brown Recluse in either of those scenarios, check out the next page.

    When I was bitten by a brown recluse, this is the website I found doing research. I bought the. Bentonite clay and mixed it with Echinacea oil and put it on the bite. By then, my bite had bluish black edges with a line across it and fang marks. I had used normal first aid products but they were not stopping the process. After using the clay mixture, the wound is healing normally. This really works!

    If you know anyone who works on a drilling rig. They have access to an abundance of bentonite.

    Athletes foot cream like extra strength tinactin also work. You just have to keep applying it and keep the bite covered in a heavy layer of cream at all times which is pretty hard to do if bandaging.

    Have been bite a couple of times. Takes long time to heal. Will always have a scar. This little spider is as dangerous as a rattlesnake. With the spider bite it’s a long slow process, where with the snake bite it’s a lot quicker. Everyone be careful.
