1) The brown recluse doesn't hang webs. Considering she was bitten on the back of the neck this is unlikely.
2) If you are bitten by a brown recluse and you are allergic to them, ignoring the bite will grant you a trip to the ER, guaranteed.
But, as an aside, most people aren't even allergic to recluse bites.
Edit - Before it is said... Allergic is a bad word. More like, If you don't have the natural antibodies to the toxin.
My guess, depending on the region, would be hobo spider. We have them around here(oregon). Big, hairy, uygly, HUGE fangs and they make webs.

Anyway, since having an intention of being peaceful with them, I am not scared of them anymore, because neither of us feel threatened.

When I was young I was s__t scared of spiders.
They do not worry me anymore though; I realised they are an irrational phobia. Infact, they are probably more scared of us.
I have since found they are quite tasty also; tarantulas that is!
Dude....no way. I am going to lose sleep tonight over this ahahahah
One suggestion for anybody reading this who doesn't want spiders, or any visible bug in the house. GET A CAT.

I think the reason why we are scared is becasue we know that alot are poisonous. Also its very heard to tell different spiders apart so you dont know witch ones are poisonous or not.
