The brown recluse spider, also known as the violin spider, has an extremely venomous spider e spiders prefer dry places that’s why they spin build their webs in closets, cellars, woodpiles and sheds.

However, these spiders may wander to other places that are usually undisturbed so it’s always good to be cautious.
