Re: “Things That Bite in the Night: Brown recluse and hobo spiders are getting a bum rap

Since this spider is so misunderstood I would love to sit down with an educated person seriously wanting to solve the mystery of hobo spiders. I have five specialists and twenty years of medical records. My first bite was in 1998 when I was barely 22. About five years after the bite my license was medically revoked due to brain deficiencies and other things. There is really too much to just write about. Even still to this day I have problems with residual effects. I have a great respect for spiders now only after conquering a extremely traumatic fear. I study any new information that I can find and sadly realize that much of the information out there is wrong or changing quickly. Ironically I will say I was lucky enough when I was bit the second time to actually find the spider in bed with me in the morning. The second bite happened years after the 1st and due to Medical advancements was actually treated the way it should have been and the recovery time was less than eight months. The second spider bite was definitely positively identified as a hobo spider. From what I can remember from the first spider bite they were both identical just treated differently by the treating doctors.

Re: “Things That Bite in the Night: Brown recluse and hobo spiders are getting a bum rap

I do hope you figured our you are both wrong and right. Not recluse spiders. Hobo spiders.New to the Midwest from Europe. Unfortunately thrive in Oregon. Personally I have been bitten by a hobo spider twice. The first time when I was 22. It changed my life in ways you will probably never get.September 14
2017 I got my licence back after 15 years of it being medically revoked The first bite went basically untreated because people unwilling to realize it's possible for new species to travel with human help. Years later I actually found the spider in bed with me that bit me the second time. Even today studies are fresh with this spider. I guess I was one of the few you wrote about but would love to educate you further on this Spider.
