My Services

I provide consultation for anyone requiring expertise on the biology of brown recluse spiders, a venomous species that can cause debilitating injuries. Typically, I work in the tri-state area of Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri but will consider work further afield.


My work falls into two main categories:​

1) Providing independent, impartial risk assessments of the likelihood of envenomation by this spider. Building inspections (workplaces, homes, etc.) for the presence or absence of brown recluse spiders and providing a detailed, science-based report on level of risk or absence thereof.

2) Conducting tests of repellents or pesticides on brown recluses; providing live specimens for testing.
