Brown Recluse Spider Bites Are Very Rare in South Carolina

Making It Grow! Minute logo

Only 44 Brown Recluse Spiders have been found in South Carolina since record keeping began.

Amanda McNulty is a Clemson University Extension Horticulture agent and the host of South Carolina ETV’s Making It Grow! gardening program. She studied horticulture at Clemson University as a non-traditional student. “I’m so fortunate that my early attempts at getting a degree got side tracked as I’m a lot better at getting dirty in the garden than practicing diplomacy!” McNulty also studied at South Carolina State University and earned a graduate degree in teaching there.
