The number of names tells you that they are found in a lot of places and that includes your clothes, shoes, gloves, wood pile and on and on.
Obviously they are brownish and have the unique feature of 6 eyes in 3 pairs. Yeah right, you discover those eyes only after it is dead. Most other spiders have 8 eyes in 2 rows of 4. And they are venomous. A bite is a mess to deal with.
The major difference you need to know between the black widow and the brown recluse is that the black widow stays at home (near the web) to eat and the recluse forages for food.
That means the brown recluse ends up in places where humans stick their hands in and bothers the spider and he bites you. Or you roll over on one who is wandering around looking for a quick meal and you end up with a bite in your you know where. Not good.
They do not want to bite you but when you brush against them they defend themselves as only they know how.
